Lake Whatcom Right-of-Way Retrofits

Project Overview

This project implements Low Impact Development (LID) retrofits to mitigate for, or eliminate sources of, nutrient and bacteria loading in stormwater runoff from untreated public rights-of-way into Lake Whatcom. The project is located along Northshore Drive from Britton Road to the city limits, and in alleys south of Academy Street between Pullman and Flint streets. Stormwater treatment efficiency will be increased through infiltration and flow attenuation. Funding for this work comes in part from the Department of Ecology.
