Bellingham council may close boat launch to stop invasive species into Lake Whatcom
The Bellingham Herald
The Bellingham City Council appears willing to consider a shutdown of the Bloedel-Donovan Park boat launch until an inspection and decontamination system can be set up to prevent introduction of zebra and quagga mussels. No such shutdown proposal appeared on the council's Monday, April 23, agenda. But when council members learned that there was no chance to get a boat inspection and decontamination system up and running before the beginning of summer, most wanted to take immediate action.
