(First airdate: October 8, 2019) IAN JABLONSKI: GUARDIAN OF THE WATER WORKS. Our Town host Maryanne McNellis interviews Ian Jablonski, Water Resources Manager of the City of Port Townsend. Climate change is making us all think more about the earth’s resources. Even though we live in the so-called “Emerald State” we are not immune to water shortages. The summer of 2015 brought us every close to real problems. Ian and his team are responsible for making sure that the water that’s piped to us from the Big & Little Quilcine Rivers is pure and safe for drinking. Water-borne pathogens have killed in other parts of the country. He explains the elaborate system for making our water safe.
