Our Water Supply
The water we provide is pumped from the Spokane-Rathdrum Aquifer and then treated through a chlorination system. We pump water from 10 wells located throughout the district. All the wells are tied together through a pipe system — you may be receiving water from our oldest well, dug by hand in 1908, or our newest well, located at 24th and Adams, which started in 2013.
Saving water matters to protect the Spokane River and the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum aquifer.
Outdoor Watering Nerds can connect you to Professionals and Do It Yourself resources for outdoor leak detection, sprinkler repair and retrofit, and landscape design. The Nerds are excited to bring you how-to videos, water-saving tips, rebates, classes, and events in Kootenai and Spokane counties. Saving water outdoors protects your pocketbook, economic growth, the Spokane River, and our sole source of drinking water, the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer. Good for you. Good for our future.
