This immersive experience comes with a bonus image of the not-elusive-enough mystery foam.
June 2022: Cornwall Beach Outfall
A favorite among Bellingham locals for preventing the unwanted release of sewer trolls straight into the bay, the remarkable Cornwall Beach Outfall begs the question, can one outfall really have it all? With waters low in dissolved oxygen but high in curb appeal, Cornwall Beach Outfall is not to be missed in springtime!
July 2022: Bennet Street Outfall
The Bennett St. Outfall takes the viewer on a Gaudí-esque journey with its modernist sensibility, gentle curves and steady stream of subtly contaminated water. Is it a pizza oven? A gargantuan turtle emerging from a primordial stew? An ephemeral spring of E. coli bacteria contamination? The opportunities are limited only by your imagination (and perhaps the amount of dog poop discarded upstream).

RE Sources scientists took regular water samples last year and observed that most places where road runoff flows into bigger water bodies, state water quality standards were not met throughout the year. Our goal is to someday have clean stormwater more deserving of our region’s iconic outfalls.
