Water

The City of Spokane's Water Department delivers up to 180 million gallons of clean, safe drinking water every day to more than 200,000 people in our community. The City's water system is the third largest in the state of Washington, behind Seattle and Tacoma.

Our water system includes pumps, reservoirs, source wells, and more than 1,000 miles of water mains and smaller water lines that bring water from our wells to homes and businesses. Our system is aging, with many of our pipes dating from the World War II era and earlier. We will invest millions of dollars to replace and upgrade water mains and make other improvements in coming years. See the citywide capital plan (PDF 23.7 MB).

We are committed to operating efficiently and keeping water rates affordable for our citizens. Mayor David Condon has committed to limiting annual increases in rates to inflation. For 2014, we are increasing rates by 2.9 percent. For information on billing and water rates, go to our Utility Billing page.
