The Spokane County Utilities Division has been renamed the Environmental Services Department. The reasoning behind the change is to better reflect our work for Spokane County citizens.
Utilities Director Kevin Cooke said they decided on the new name of “Environmental Services” because the department provides citizens with a variety of services related to the protection of the environment. “Considering our ongoing emphasis on stewardship of our water resources, effective handling of solid waste, and related educational programs, we decided a new name would better reflect our work,” Cooke said.
The Environmental Services Department also has a new slogan – “Keeping Your Water Clean and the Environment Green!”
