The Flynn Street Water Quality improvement project will transform Flynn Street between Electric Avenue and Lakeside Lane to provide stormwater treatment for Flynn Street near Lake Whatcom. Work on Flynn Street represents the continued effort to provide treatment on all roads within the City Limits in the Lake Whatcom Watershed. The Flynn Street project will include extensive planting, allowing the native vegetation to capture and hold phosphorus. Additional piping and drainage structures will better manage roadway runoff as well as the addition of a stormwater treatment facility. The new media in the facility, including phosphorus-removing filter cartridges, has been given conditional approval from the Department of Ecology as a phosphorus-limiting best management practice (BMP).
Accomplishments: Work is substantially complete. Final inspection held 11-4-10.
Next Milestones: Punch list and closeout.
