Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer The source of drinking water for overpeople, the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie (SVRP) Aquifer is a natural treasure of North Idaho and Eastern Washington. You can also visit the County's Groundwater Monitoring Program web page for current water quality and quantity information.

The Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer (SVRP Aquifer) is the sole source of water for overpeople in Spokane County, WA and Kootenai County ID, this underground water-bearing rock formation is one of the region's most important resources.

A ground water pollution potential map of Portage County has been prepared using the DRASTIC mapping process. The DRASTIC system consists of two major elements: the designation of mappable units, termed hydrogeologic settings, and the superposition of a File Size: 9MB.

Olson et al. Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into type of water pollution can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution.

Local information. Our local groundwater information page will help you find information available in your county or jurisdiction. Data, wells, and maps. EIM groundwater search is part of our Environmental Information Management system and contains data from groundwater studies.; Well log search is a database of all records about wells on file with the state.

Wastewater. The City of Spokane Wastewater Department is responsible for collecting, managing and treating wastewater generated throughout our community. We operate the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility and a complex system of pipes and pumps that collect wastewater and, in some locations, stormwater.

The Spokane County Conservation District has done a lot of work in this drainage basin and leads a Watershed Planning process for the creek. Little Spokane River: The Little Spokane River lies just to the north of the City of Spokane.

Gaston plant, Greene County plant, James H. Miller plant, James M. Barry plant, and the William C. Groundwater is a valuable resource both in the United States and throughout the world. Groundwater depletion, a term often defined as long-term water-level declines caused by sustained groundwater pumping, is a key issue associated with groundwater use.

Many areas of the United States are experiencing groundwater depletion. Groundwater quality assessment. To better understand and manage groundwater resources, we conduct studies to characterize surface water and groundwater interactions, support groundwater cleanup efforts, and assess potential impacts to groundwater quality from land use practices, among others.

The U.S. Geological Survey has been investigating ground-water resources in the State of Washington since the early part of the 20th Century. During this time the use of ground-water evolved from meager domestic and stock water needs to the current complex requirements for public-water supplies, large irrigation projects, industrial plants and numerous other uses.

The Spokane River is a receptacle for untreated storm water and raw sewage. Numerous agencies are working to resolve this problem, from the City of Spokane to the Dept. of Ecology, Sierra Club's Spokane River Project, and the Land's Council. (see The Spokesman-Review article by Jonathan Brunt, Decem ).

groundwater contamination over a much shorter than expected time of operation. Such effects are, however, unaccounted for in the current design criteria. In response, this research was conducted to assess the potential for degrading the quality of underlying groundwater resources as they relate to.

Still, groundwater is quite vulnerable to pollution, and groundwater pollution hits many Americans where they live: their drinking supply. At the time of the Census, 48 percent of the U.S.

population depended on groundwater lor some or all of their drinking supply—29 percent through public supplies, and 19 percent through private wells. Prevention of groundwater contamination is far less expensive than cleanup.

EPA studies have shown that investing funds for groundwater protection is cost-effective compared to groundwater cleanup at a ratio that runs anywhere from to (U.S. EPA, ). The Growth Management Act requires protection of public groundwater drinking.

Spokane County Watershed Planning Inthe Washington State Legislature passed the Watershed Management Act to provide a framework for local citizens, interest groups, and governmental organizations to collaboratively identify and solve water-related issues in each of the 62 Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIA) of the state.

by John Osborn, MD. Here's the problem:people flush sewage effluent into the Spokane River. The river receives more'"nutrients" and ammonia and phosphorous than it can handle. Oxygen in the water needed by fish to breathe is depleted. Groundwater measurements on site are time-consuming and cause easily avoidable costs.

The same applies to maintenance visits to the device. When developing our new OTT ecoLog groundwater data logger, Product Manager Peter Schaeffeler and his team had a clear goal: To make measurement, data transmission and maintenance as efficient, convenient, safe and cost-saving as possible.

The aquifer draws from the river. Between the state line and the eastern Spokane Valley city limits, there are places where the river practically disappears during dry months as the aquifer draws what it needs.
