Programs and Projects
Programs and projects in the Lake Whatcom watershed are largely driven by the Work Plans created for the Joint Lake Whatcom Management Program. Program areas that have been targeted as high priority over the past six years are land preservation, stormwater management, urbanization / land development, and community outreach. High priority water quality concerns that have been targeted include nutrients, fecal coliform and other pollutants (i.e. metals and pesticides).
