Environmental Resources:

  • Land Use (subdivisions): Specialists review new land subdivisions, conditional use permits and zoning changes for potential sewage disposal and water supply source issues. We provide findings and conditions for development to the appropriate planning jurisdiction within Spokane County. Call 324-1560 x3
  • Site Hazard Assessment:
    Specialists evaluate sites identified by the Washington State Department of Ecology as hazardous, due to residual chemicals or toxins, and rank them to help establish clean-up priorities. Program staff also evaluate meth labs, clearing the site for safe occupation after cleaning by licensed contractors.
  • Water Well Drilling
    We provide assistance to private well owners inquiring about water quality, odor, taste and contaminants. Environmental Health Specialists inspect new drinking water wells in Spokane County to assure they meet construction standards, and old or unused wells when taken out of service.  Call 324-1560 ext.6 for information.
    The Department of Health monitors all public water systems in Spokane County.
