We improved the way stormwater from Interstate 5 is treated before it enters local streams at four locations in Whatcom County and one in Skagit County.
We built stormwater treatment facilities that catch and filter contaminants out of the water before the water is released into local creeks.
| Protects Environment
The new stormwater treatment facilities protect the environment by filtering contaminants and slowly releasing stormwater runoff back into local creeks, helping prevent erosion and flooding.
By reducing levels of vehicle contaminants that reach local streams, we help improve water quality for fish and other wildlife that depend on our ecosystem.
Partnerships & Cooperation
We kept local agencies and communities notified of construction activities during the work.
This project is funded through the following fund sources:
