our programs

Capital Projects
Capital improvement projects (CIPs) improve stormwater systems to protect water quality and reduce the risk of flooding.  Learn more about BBWARM CIPs.
Education and Outreach
BBWARM's education and outreach program is designed to increase public knowledge about stormwater issues and promote voluntary actions that reduce stormwater problems. Learn more about BBWARM education and outreach projects.
Maintenance and Operations
Properly maintained stormwater drainage systems reduce the risk of damage to property and sensitive areas like streambanks and marine bluffs during storms. Learn more about stormwater facility maintenance. 
Water Quality
Protecting water quality ensures Birch Bay remains safe for recreation and shellfish harvesting.  Good water quality also supports a healthy aquatic ecosystem. BBWARM supports Whatcom County's comprehensive water quality monitoring program for the Birch Bay Watershed.  Learn more about water quality.
Subwatershed Planning
BBWARM is completed subwatershed master plans for urbanized subbasins in the Birch Bay watershed.  These plans provide detailed information on existing stormwater facilities and identify priority areas for improvements. Learn more about subwatershed master plans.
