The Bellingham Public Works Department has collected additional water samples to help in assessing environmental impacts to Squalicum Creek.
Ecology and the City of Bellingham responded to gasoline odors in a storm drain and high vapor concentrations at a gas station along E. Sunset Drive. It is not known whether this is related to this incident. Please see Sunset Storm Drain Spill.
