WHAT ARE THE WATERSHED IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS?

Watershed Improvement Districts are local government entities formed and controlled by the farmer/landowners within the District. This structure allows them to collaborate on projects, generate funds needed for projects and secure grants.

The first WID in Whatcom County was the Bertrand WID and it has engaged in numerous innovative and effective water management projects. It secured more than one million dollars in grant money to support these projects.
