Description A project to build Washington State's first cemetery for veterans of the armed forces began on Memorial Day 2009. It will be located near the city of Medical Lake in Spokane County. The Washington State Department of Veteran's Affairs discovered that, due to a seasonally-changing water table in the area, there would not be sufficient water for irrigating the cemetery land. Working with one of Ecology's reclaimed water engineers and one of their hydrogeologists, they were able to develop a strategy to use reclaimed water from the West Medical Lake's wastewater reclamation facility for irrigation. Along with providing an efficient, reliable source of water, the strategy will also help to conserve the region's groundwater supply.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
