Deer Creek Water Association was founded in 1973 to provide safe and reliable potable water to residences and businesses in Whatcom County, Washington, just north of the City of Bellingham.
As a private, non-profit "Group A" Water Association, we are governed by member-elected Directors who oversee and maintain bylaws that govern our operation. We are equal to both Special Purpose Water Districts and City-owned water utilities in that we must follow the same rules for water testing, system construction standards, system maintenance, and proactive planning through the development of a comprehensive Water System Plan that must be prepared every ten years and approved by Washington state's Department of Health.
