Water Resource Center


The Spokane County Water Resource Center (WRC) is a regional educational facility with interactive displays related to area aquifer and river knowledge, water reclamation and many other water resource issues.
A WRC visit and a walking tour of the adjacent Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility are separate events but can be combined. Appointments are necessary but we attempt to be flexible and available.  Complete a Group Visit Request Form to inquire about a visit.


When you bring your class here, our goal is to provide lessons that will help you meet the applicable Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), aka Washington State Science Learning Standards (WSSLS), including practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas.  Complete a Group Visit Request Form to initiate the conversation.  Link to our Education pages to learn more.

Community/Civic Tours

Contact us to arrange a time for either a self-guided visit to the WRC with brief introduction (small groups) or a guided visit at the WRC (groups of 10 or more) with enhanced activities and optional Reclamation Facility tours.  Complete a Group Visit Request Form to initiate a visit.

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.  Visit our Tours and Open House Events page to learn more!
