Six signs describing how the city prevents sewage and stormwater from entering the Spokane River will be installed around town, according to permits issued by the city.

The signs, which declare “It’s All About the River,” will go up at the combined sewer overflow tanks the city has been building over the past decade. The locations are at 902 E. Sprague Ave., 3792 W. Northwest Blvd., 2828 N. T.J. Meenach Drive, 3800 E. Upriver Drive, 2008 N. Pettet Drive and 1280 E. Third Ave.

Each sign has a visual portrayal of how sewer and stormwater is collected and stored before being treated and released into the river.

Permits list the cost of sign installation at $10,000. Baldwin Signs, of Spokane, is doing the work.
