The city of Lynden has partnered with Darigold to provide more drinking water from the Nooksack River.
A new project that was helped by a grant from the Washington State Legislature, will pump condensed water leftover from powdered milk production to a new $35 million water treatment plant through the Nooksack River which will produce water for domestic use.
Darigold Senior VP of Operations Scott Burleson says they’re “pleased that we’ve been able to find a way to reuse excess condensate water. It’s a win-win partnership.”
The project will be completed over the summer and it will allow the city to take 20 percent more water from the Nooksack River for drinking and domestic use.
