Properties directly along Lake Whatcom’s shoreline, especially those with large areas of open lawn, hold the greatest opportunity for meaningful improvement to the lake’s health. Pipes and drains on your property may carry runoff from pollution-generating surfaces, such as lawns, driveways, and roofs, directly into the lake. Installing a water quality improvement can mitigate these impacts, leading to a cleaner and healthier shoreline for your use and enjoyment. Projects can be integrated into your existing landscape without changing the way you use and enjoy your property. Improvements do not mean you have to remove your lawn!
