Whatcom gives a dam

Members of the council for Whatcom county Washington say they welcome feedback from Petersburg area residents about proposed hydro electric power plants in nearby Thomas Bay. Both Whatcom county and a private Bellingham company have applied for a federal permit to study the bay’s hydro potential. But at least two Whatcom council members say they’re going to take a closer look at their county’s involvement in the project.
