Description The Urban Waters Initiative is tasked with locating and eliminating sources of pollution being discharged to the Spokane River. Finding and fixing direct discharges of stormwater to the river are constant and perplexing problems. When the Urban Waters Initiative team found one such site, in the city of Spokane, we had to figure out who was responsible for the turbid runoff.
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.
