Silver Beach Creek Stormwater Improvements Phase 2

SBC2 Vic Map

Summary

The project will restore the main channel of Silver Beach Creek below Hillsdale using natural vegetation.

Project Benefits

  • Stabilizing the banks of the portion of Silver Beach Creek south of Hillsdale Rd.  will reduce phosphorus loading in Lake Whatcom.
  • A more natural stream course will be created, providing fish habitat with woody debris and natural stream substrate.
  • The impoundment that created a fish passage barrier that was destroyed in 2021 will be completely removed.
  • The newly proposed channel capacity will accommodate the stormwater that flows to this low-lying area at the bottom of Hillsdale Rd.
