Shepardson/Huntington Retrofits

Project Overview
This project is designed to implement 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 involves water quality improvements to reduce phosphorus loading from an unpaved section of roadway and ditches along Huntington and Shepardson streets. Funding for this work comes in part from the Washington State Department of Ecology.
