Properties near and along creeks that drain to Lake Whatcom have a special role to play in protecting water quality. Pipes and drains on your property may carry runoff from pollution-generating surfaces, such as lawns, driveways, and roofs, directly into the creek. Installing a water quality improvement can mitigate these impacts, creating a beautiful feature on your property that also works to clean up your site’s runoff.
