Description The report summarizes sampling survey data collected in 2002 by the City of Bellingham. The data support the listing of Whatcom Creek on the state’s 303(d) list of impaired waterbodies. Bacteria problems in the creek and some of its tributaries are primarily from nonpoint sources. The report also recommends fecal coliform Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) limits for the creek.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
