The City of Spokane is required to have a stormwater management plan that addresses stormwater quality and quantity issues and to comply with the Eastern Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit.
We seek to reduce pollution associated with stormwater and protect the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, the Spokane River, and other surface waters. The City funds its stormwater management program through the stormwater charge on residents' and businesses' monthly utility bills.
The City offers credits to commercial and industrial customers for some stormwater disposal and treatment facilities, including appropriate use of low-impact development (LID) techniques. Please call 509.625.7900 for more information.
