Designing Water Quality Monitoring Programs for Watershed Projects The need for such monitoring will depend on the goals of the watershed project, the complexity of the water quality issues to be addressed, the size and land uses within the be known that eutrophication is a problem in a particular lake, the development of an effective.

Lake Whatcom and Water Quality Control This lake is valuable for more than recreation, though. It is home to habitat and 23 sub-watersheds that all feed into Whatcom Creek and Bellingham Bay.

It is also the source of drinking water for overWhatcom County residents. With so many uses and high demands, water quality is poor. A non-profit group, (formerly 'The Initiative Group, Inc'), formed by citizens Marian Beddill, Larry Williams, Nancy Grayum, Curtis Wambach and Christ Damitio are trying to preserve the city's drinking water reservoir watershed from urban development, and it's resultant pollution and contamination.
