The Post Point Resource Recovery project is a defining opportunity for Bellingham to implement its 2018 Climate Action Plan and reduce sewer utility carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 60-80%.
We are designing future improvements at the Post Point Resource Recovery Plant (Post Point). These improvements are needed because equipment is aging, expensive to repair, and incinerates (burns) rather than recovers resources.
Earlier planning phases of the project collected feedback through community workshops. We are replacing the facility’s incineration system with a digestion process that transforms wastewater solids into two beneficial and safe reusable resources: biosolids and biogas.
Once built and operational, the solid waste system at Post Point will be a process that protects public health, safety and natural resources while continuing to meet demand for efficient, quality service essential for a growing, diverse community.
