Description Through work done by the Department of Ecology (Ecology) and
community partners, many of the large sources of pollution
to the Spokane River are now being eliminated or controlled.
Other sources of toxic chemicals have not yet been located. These
smaller sources likely add up to a substantial amount of pollution
for the Spokane River. The Urban Waters Initiative aims to address
this problem.
