Post Point Waste Water Treatment Plant
The Philbin Group provided landscape architectural and environmental mitigation services for the expansion of the City of Bellingham’s Post Point Waste Water Treatment Plant. Located along the shoreline in Fairhaven, the project site is bounded on the west by an intertidal lagoon. The project included extensive mitigation planting plans, salt marsh creation and planting, creation of all JARPA figures coordinating with the team biologists, and design of pedestrian trails and fencing adjacent to the wetlands. Non-critical area landscape improvements included restoration plantings to mitigate for construction impacts at the plant perimeter and within the plant interior. The project scope also included irrigation review, plus trail and bench additions at a non-designated dog off-leash area on the property.
