technical information and expertise.

To improve coordination, collaboration and communication among government
water purveyors in Whatcom County in order to achieve greater efficiency and
effectiveness in delivering water supply services.

enhance the effectiveness of public outreach campaigns in reaching
the broadest possible audience.
