Resource Recovery at Post Point

​Project Overview:

We are in the early stages of planning for future improvements at the Post Point Wastewater Treatment Plant (Post Point). These improvements are needed because equipment is aging, expensive to repair, and incinerates – rather than recovers – reusable resources. Our goal is to provide sustainable, cost-effective wastewater treatment for the next 20 years and beyond.

Through this project, the City will plan and construct new facilities at Post Point to capture and reuse valuable resources from Bellingham's wastewater.

Status- July 2017

Accomplishments:  Community Work Shop (May 23), Community Open House (July 31), ongoing City Council briefings.

Next Milestones:  City Council to vote on preferred alternative.
