As a member of the Whatcom Water Alliance, Bellingham joins other municipalities and water utilities in Whatcom county who understand that regular coordination, collaboration and communication can result in improved management of local and regional water resources. Partnering with other water systems is viewed as a cost-effective way to develop and implement public education while sharing technical information and expertise.
The goals of the Whatcom Water Alliance are:
- To improve coordination, collaboration and communication among government water purveyors in Whatcom County in order to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness in delivering water supply services.
- To develop and promote common water conservation programs to enhance the effectiveness of public outreach campaigns in reaching the broadest possible audience.
