The Utilities Division protects public health and the environment in Spokane County through the effective management of:
Responsive customer service is the primary element of our mission. We welcome your input about your most recent interaction with the Utilities Division by taking this quick 5-question survey.
Sewer Planning, Design and Construction - The Division is responsible for sewer systems in the urbanized portions of the Spokane Valley and North Spokane. The primary goal of the sewer program is the elimination of septic tanks above the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, Spokane's sole-source potable water supply.
Wastewater Operations - Wastewater Operations provides inspection, operation and maintenance of Spokane County's Wastewater Collection System. It also strives toward reliable, cost-effective, timely and courteous service to county residents.
Water Reclamation - The County's state-of-the-art water reclamation facility leads the way in producing high-quality treated effluent, and serves County residents by providing protection of surface and groundwater resources. A component of this is an Industrial Pretreatment Program which enforces limitations on priority pollutants entering the County's wastewater stream.
Regional Solid Waste System / Transfer Stations - The Division manages the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System, owns and operates two transfer stations and conducts remedial and monitoring activities at three closed landfills, which have been federally designated as Superfund cleanup sites.
Water Resources - The Division provides a wide range of educational and outreach activities, including programs at the Spokane County Water Resource Center, and an ongoing water quality monitoring program for our sole-source aquifer. We also review the comprehensive plans of water purveyors in the Spokane region for consistency with the County's Coordinated Water System Plan and conduct studies to characterize and define the water resources of the Spokane region.
Utilities Billing and Customer Service - Billing and customer service is provided for sewer services, solid waste services, and for a voter-approved aquifer protection fee.
