Whatcom Land Trust in the Lake Whatcom watershed Among the many entities working to protect the Lake Whatcom watershed, the City of Bellingham and Whatcom Land Trust have been working to address watershed conditions for more than 25 years.

About the Watershed Lake Whatcom is the drinking water supply for about , residents of Whatcom County including the City of Bellingham, residents living around the lake, and surrounding rural areas. The Lake Whatcom Watershed is home to ab people in 6, homes. Land use in the watershed is comprised of commercial forestry (56%).

Frequently Flooded Areas This map depicts the approximate location of Frequently Flooded Areas in Whatcom County. Frequently flooded areas are areas are located along major rivers, streams, and coastal areas where the depth, velocity, intensity, and frequency of flood water during major events presents a risk to human life and property. (a) Unless otherwise exempt per subsection (1) of this section, or unless a standard land use vesting determination concludes otherwise, all projects, work, or activities, including subdivisions, binding site plans, and nonexempt new short subdivision parcels, proposed to occur within the Lake Whatcom Watershed Overlay District shall. Shrubsteppe provides important habitat for many wildlife species in Washington State, such as the sage grouse (Centrocerus urophasianus), sharp-tailed grouse (Tympanuchus phasiannellus), and pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis) which are currently listed as threatened or endangered with teppe once extended over nearly all of the non-forested land in Washington east of . The Lake Whatcom Management Program supports a variety of different programs and projects in the Lake Whatcom Watershed. All management activities are guided by five-year work plans that are organized around ten program areas. Specific programs and projects that are being implemented as part of the current work plan are highlighted below.

Lake Whatcom is a large natural lake in Whatcom County. The northwest end of the lake lies within the city of Bellingham, and 22 small watersheds drain into the lake. The lake has been threatened by declining water quality, and in was put on the state’s list of polluted water bodies. The 2 countries collect imagery for land cover at differing temporal scales, we were able to complete harmonized, bi-national land cover composites for / and / In the U.S. the land cover product includes developed imperiousness data layer. Land cover/use data are also available summarized by watershed. (2) The department shall initiate a pilot project for the municipal watershed delineated by the Lake Whatcom hydrographic boundaries to determine what factors need to be considered to achieve water quality standards beyond those required under chapter RCW and what additional management actions can be taken on state trust lands that can contribute to such higher water quality standards. A watershed analysis is an in-depth examination of a watershed’s biological and physical characteristics. A forest practices watershed analysis addresses the cumulative effects that forest practices, such as timber harvests or road buidling, may have on cultural resources and public resources, such as fish, water, and capital improvements.
