Pollution Source Control / Business Inspections

Lynden has many viable businesses and commercial establishments. An inventory was compiled, and a subset of these businesses were deemed potential pollutant generators per the Department of Ecology’s characterization. Many of these businesses will be visited this year by City staff, contractors, or by the Whatcom County Health Department to provide technical assistance site visits and pollution prevention education. Our hope is to save businesses and public entities money on the costly cleanup of spills, as well as protect business investments, employees, customers, and our community.
