Goals and Policies
Over the years a number of goals and policies have been adopted to guide actions related to hazardous materials and spill response. Some of these goals and policies have been adopted jointly by the City of Bellingham, Whatcom County, and Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District (e.g. Joint Resolution Whatcom County 92-73, Bellingham No. 92-68, District 10 No. 560). Others have been adopted by individual jurisdictions and incorporated into various documents such as comprehensive plans. The goals and policies can be viewed at "Hazardous Materials and Spill Response Goals and Policies".
