Conversion from Nooksack River water to Groundwater Supply
The City of Ferndale converted the City from purchasing river water to using its own, independent groundwater supply system to provide drinking water to City residents and customers. Prior to conversion, Ferndale purchased water from Whatcom County Public Utility District No. 1. The project called for upgraded facilities and a water main connecting two different groundwater wells to the water treatment facility. “Schedule A” includes the facility upgrades. “Schedule B” includes the water main project.
