Storm and Surface Water Utility

Cleaning Britton Pond

Bellingham receives 36 inches of rainfall annually. Rain hitting the ground becomes storm and surface water that travels over our roads and sidewalks eventually ending up in our lakes, streams and Bellingham Bay. To ensure the health and safety of our citizens and wildlife, this water is managed . The Storm and Surface Water Utility funds improvements and maintenance of the stormwater system in Bellingham.
