Water-resource experts will weigh solutions to Whatcom County's water problems at a Saturday, March 15, forum put on by the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County.
The free presentation runs from 10 a.m. to noon in the Bellingham Public Library, 210 Central Ave. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Coffee and refreshments will be available.
The list of water issues in the county is long and complicated but can be boiled down to two: too much pollution and not enough water to go around.
Speakers include Henry Bierlink, executive director of Whatcom Farm Friends; George Boggs, executive director of the Whatcom Conservation District; Jeremy Freimund, water resources manager for Lummi Indian Business Council; and Ann Wessel, water resources project manager at the Department of Ecology.
The panel is the second of a two-part series on county water-resource issues. A video of February's program is at lwvbellinghamwhatcom.org/WaterResources.html.
