This County is a failure.
My abducted child lives in Bellingham
The family that has abducted him has a standing threat on my life, has filed false documents against my son and I in three states, and has now recruited Officer April Michelson to perpetuate
I have been allowed no avenue of grievance and a saddened that an Officer of the law can be complicit in the abuse of my child and use the badge to perpetuate
Shame on you, Whatcom County.
Whatcom County and city elected officials were invited by the Lummi Indian Business Council to an open house last night. Whatcom County government officials were pleased to be invited and enjoyed the time together.
Keeping Shellfish Beds Open Requires On-going Effort—
We have been celebrating the reopening of 129 acres of shellfish beds for harvest in central Birch Bay due... to improved water quality in Terrell Creek. Keeping fecal coliform bacteria and other pollutants out of our waterways requires everybody in the community helping however they can—by picking up pet waste, inspecting and maintaining septic systems, managing pastures and manure, using marine pump out stations, or keeping food away from wildlife. Continued community participation in these and other pollution prevention actions is needed to ensure clean water to keep local waterways safe and shellfish beds open.
Learn more about what you can do and check up to date water quality morning data in your area by visiting the Whatcom County Public Works Water Quality Program website (http://whatcomcounty.us/1072/Water-Quality) or explore the Washington State Department of Agriculture’s

Taking Care of Septic Systems – Landowners in the Terrell Creek and Birch Bay watershed are joining others throughout Whatcom County to regularly inspect and ma...intain their septic systems (also called on-site-sewage systems or OSS). Regular inspection and maintenance identifies problems early before they become expensive fixes and ensures that harmful bacteria and viruses don’t enter waterways from failing systems. Watch this short video from Whatcom County Public Works (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRF9XNYpcP4) and visit the Whatcom County Health Department’s website (http://wa-whatcomcounty.civicplus.com/…/Operation-and-Maint…) to learn more.
We are celebrating improved water quality in Terrell Creek and the reopening of shellfish beds at the mouth of the creek in Birch Bay.
For more information read the press release (https://wa-whatcomcounty.civicplus.com/DocumentCent…/…/32365).
Thank you, landowners, for inspecting and maintaining your septic system to keep our waterways clean.
