Protect Spokane River

The Spokane River is experiencing near-historic low flows and historic high air temperatures that threaten its ecological health and its recreational activities. Water drawn from our aquifer to serve our needs comes at a cost to the amount of water flowing in the river.

The more we as stewards of the region’s future do to protect the health of our river, the greater the gift we pass on. I urge those that read this to take steps now to use less water in their daily life and do their part to protect our region’s greatest assets: our aquifer, our river and our people.
