The City of Lynden’s (City) General Sewer Plan Update (Plan) provides a summary of the City’s current sewage capacities: an analysis of the impact of projected growth on the City's sewage collection, conveyance, and treatment systems; and proposes a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to alleviate system deficiencies. It also documents the City's policies, operation and maintenance practices, and financial plan to implement the CIP.
The City of Lynden's (City) water system is a major infrastructure, much of which is invisible to the customers that receive its water. The water system requires qualified staff to operate and maintain an ongoing capital improvement program to replace old components to meet the requirements mandated by federal and state laws. The primary purpose of the City of Lynden Water System Plan (WSP) is to identify and schedule water system improvements that correct existing system deficiencies and ensure a safe and reliable supply of water to current and future customers. This WSP complies with Washington State Department of Health (DOH) regulations under Chapter 246-290 Washington Administrative Code (WAC), which was revised in 2017 to require water purveyors to update their water system plans every 10 years.
