Description The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) is making available a 2007 study on pesticide contamination in well water in northwest Whatcom County. The report updates a 1998 study.The two studies looked at the extent, the source and the potential health risks of groundwater contamination in the Bertrand Creek area. Groundwater in this area is part of the Sumas-Blaine aquifer. The 1998 study also looked at an area northeast of Lynden called the Meadowdale area.
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.
