About the Water Resource Center
The Water Resource Center is located at the Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility just east of Freya Street and south of Trent Avenue.
The Water Resource Center provides a site to learn about:
Water in natural systems:
Learn about the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie (SVRP) Aquifer and its connection with the Spokane River and surrounding lakes. Understand how the Missoula Floods carved and filled the Spokane Valley and created the SVRP Aquifer we use today.
Water in engineered systems:
See how the dirty water that flows down your drains is cleaned and moved along in the water cycle. Help pump an aquifer model to see how contamination can travel in an aquifer and learn why we collect and treat wastewater in our region.
Combine the information you have learned to use and protect the water around us.
We provide free educational opportunities for school and private groups including:
- Guided/facilitated and self-guided activities
- Elementary through adult instruction
- Indoor and outdoor education spaces and a separate classroom
