The Department of Ecology has posted an interactive map to assist Whatcom County with determining legally available domestic water availability. The map displays areas where instream flows are not being met, based on DOE’s analyses. Many basins are closed to new uses.
Rural property owners can enter their street address and the above interactive map will tell them if water is available for their land. Please include your complete address, including zip code. A small window will pop up after you click the magnifying glass. Click to the right of the box to bring up water availability information for you property. If you have additional questions regarding availability in your area, please contact Whatcom County.
