The Lake Whatcom Reservoir Watershed lands are served by four local Jurisdictions, for water and sewer service, and zoning and development permits. We sometimes don't know what they are considering, or acting on.
You can help -- by being a Council-Watcher.

What to do?

Go to a meeting. Listen and take some notes. Write a note to us about what you saw or heard, that bothered or concerned you.


These four jurisdictions are:
     City -  County -  LWWSD -  WD7

* Bellingham City Council ;
210 Lottie Street
(360) 676-6970

* Whatcom County Council ;
311 Grand Avenue
(360) 676-6690;

* LWWSD - Lake Whatcom Water & Sewer District (formerly WD 10) ;
1010 Lakeview St.
(360) 734-9224

* WD 7 Whatcom County, Water District 7
1853 Academy Road
(360) 752-9208
(seems they have no website - and no generic email)

p.s.: The Whatcom Watch ( ) publishes select action items, monthly, of the City and County Councils.

(*) "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
-- Margaret Mead
The City of Bellingham, Whatcom County, Lake Whatcom Water & Sewer District, and Water District #7, in Washington State, have responsibility for maintaining the quality of the water in the lake which is our Reservoir - the sole source of the drinking water for about 87,000 people in Bellingham and surrounding areas - Lake Whatcom.

This Reservoir is unusual. In most parts of the US, the drinking water reservoir would be closed to public access, often fenced and gated.

Not here.

Our Reservoir is surrounded by city and county urban development, with more building still going on at a fast pace. Dozens, maybe hundreds of homes sit on the lakeshore, where their toxics and pollutants easily move from the lawns and roads into the water.

We believe that is wrong.

This webspace has continued to address any and all problems related to preserving the water quality (elimination of pollution) of the water in the Reservoir.
