THE MISSION: Transferring the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan and contracting elements from the Public Works Board (PWB) and Department of Commerce (Commerce) to the Department of Health (DOH).
THE VISION: Have a smooth transition by working together to support and provide clear communication to clients, committees, stakeholders and staff.
The City of Lynden, located north of Bellingham in Whatcom County, received $21,535,000 from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund in 2006 for their project that involved updating its 8 million gallon per day water treatment plant. The new treatment plant includes a sludge thickener and screw press for backwash solids handling. The improved solids handling is needed to accommodate the high turbidity and sediment loads that occur in the Nooksack River, from which Lynden has been drawing and treating water since 1924.
