Lake Samish, nearshore

Lake Samish (Whatcom County) is located south of Bellingham, and is a popular swimming, boating, and fishing destination. This large, 810 acre lake is divided into two sub-basins by a narrow isthmus. IWS sampled four mid-lake sites (Sites A-D) in the lake from 2005-2011 through a project funded by the Samish Water District. IWS has continued annual shoreline sampling as part of its public service lake monitoring effort. Information about the long term study is described in the reports.
