Don't miss Fall Tour Week!
October 24-28

Come learn how the Spokane County Water Reclamation Facility turns wastewater into reclaimed water!

The entire tour is approximately 90 minutes - half is inside the WRC and sitting; half is outside on flat, wheelchair accessible pavement.

Reclamation Facility
Overview of Water Resource Center Public Visits
Adjacent to the Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility (SCRWRF), is the Water Resource Center, a regional educational facility with interactive displays related to area aquifer and river knowledge, water reclamation and many other water resource issues.
A visit to the WRC is a separate event from a reclamation facility tour but can be combined.  See Visit the Water Resource Center for more information.  
Open House, Family Day and Public Tour Events
These are announced opportunities to visit when you can be assured of access to the WRC and, weather-permitting, a walking tour of the reclamation facility.

Community/Civic Tours: Contact us to arrange a time for a guided visit (groups of 10 or more) with enhanced activities.
