Construction crews remove silt from Blaine Harbor

Low tides lend well to cleanup efforts in Blaine Harbor. About every five years, the Port of Bellingham facilitates the removal of silt – made up of a combination of sand, clay and other materials – in the harbor, said Blaine harbormaster Andy Peterson. On January 11, crews were taking part in an effort to reduce silt levels at Gate 1 and the boat launch. Photo by Louise Mugar.
