Dock is out for the count

The dock is out for the year at Lighthouse Marine Park, and the jury is still out about why it failed a month after it was put in.

“We would be taking it out in September in any case,” said Christ Thomsen, Whatcom County parks operations manager.

Thomsen said they were still working with the dock manufacturer, the contractor on the project and county engineers to find out what happened when the dock began to come apart under mild wave and wind conditions on July 15 and 16.

To date they don’t have an answer, and it is not known if a fix will be in place by next season.
