Larrabee State Park Water Quality Campaign

The Northwest Straits Chapter in Bellingham has been testing Larrabee State Park's Wild Cat Cove in partnership with Department of Ecology's WA BEACH Program for multiple years. This site is consistently high in Enterococus levels and it has been getting progressively worse over the years. The two groups have engaged the Parks Department and Whatcom County Health in discussions on how to tackle and fund this issue. The goal is to find the source and clean it up. Another goal for this area that the chapter will be tackling this upcoming testing season is outreach to users on best practices.
