Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District strives to assure all side sewer construction, connection, installation, repair, reconstruction, and excavation work is done in a safe and quality manner. Any work done on side sewers (the lines between your house and the sewer main) must be done by a Bonded Side Sewer Contractor. Below is the current list of certified Sewer Services Contractors for Lake Whatcom Water & Sewer District.
If you have been hired to work or perform construction on a side sewer line in the District, you will need to fill out an application to be a Bonded Contractor. Even if you are bonded with other nearby providers (for example, the City of Bellingham), you will need to become bonded specifically with Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District to perform work in our District. A completed application includes the following:
- A surety bond in favor of the District in the amount of $30,000.00
- Satisfactory proof of liability insurance coverage (see contract for details)
- Completed and signed 2020 Bonded Side Sewer Application Packet
