Engage PT Discussion on Water Supply – Mill Agreement – Mon, Oct 26th  *Online*
The City of Port Townsend is beginning the process for renegotiating an agreement with the Port Townsend Paper Mill that will address operations, maintenance, and replacement of the Olympic Gravity Water System as the City looks forward to the next 100 years of water supply.  After nearly 100 years, 30 mile pipeline is at the end of its design life.   In an effort to develop the best possible strategy for moving forward, the City desires to put all considerations on the table.  Steve King is leading the discussion with the Port Townsend Paper Company.  Steve will provide an overview of the background, considerations recognized to date, and the path forward.  Climate change and water supply is one of those key considerations that will need to be vetted as part of the analysis and process.  Local 20/20’s Climate Preparedness group is co-hosting this discussion.
