How invested are you in keeping family farms and salmon runs in Whatcom County? In our follow up to a recent conversation with Whatcom Family Farmers with serveral members of our Climate Change & Water Committe, and our review of the materials they provided us, we have invited Ann Russel, Resources clean water program manager to give an update on how new rules concerning exempt wells and Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) permits are affecting berry and dairy farmers. Restrictions imposed by the Dept. of Ecology may have lasting implications on the farming community in Whatcom County and the future of salmon fishing.
The League has explored this subject with 2 general programs which can be found here on our website. We have toured dairy and berry farms, and brought conflicting interests together to talk. This is a community problem and the League hopes to help foster community solutions. We all want clean and plentiful water. Please join us for this important discussion.
