We regulate water, hazardous waste, and cleanup activities at the BP Cherry Point Refinery in Blaine.
The refinery began operating in 1971 and has about 800 employees. The facility turns crude oil into a variety of petroleum products.
- At full production, BP is capable of processing approximately 235,000 barrels of crude oil each day.
- Wastewater from the petroleum making process and contaminated stormwater are treated and sent to the Strait of Georgia.
- Other stormwater runoff (such as what comes from the parking lot) is treated and sent to Terrell Creek, ultimately ending up in Birch Bay.
The Northwest Clean Air Agency regulates the refinery’s air quality activities. Visit the Northwest Clean Air Agency website or call 800-622-4627 for more information.
