Tell Us What You Know About Stormwater Runoff!

Updated 11/16/2022

What do you know about stormwater management?

The City of Spokane's stormwater drainage system is a large, complex network of conveyances that are designed to take rainfall and direct it away from streets, buildings, and other public and private property.

Please complete this short survey by Nov. 18 to help us better educate the community about the importance of stormwater management. This survey was last conducted in 2019 and the goal is to compare results to see how best we can educate and serve our community.

Stormwater management areas around the City collect and treat stormwater runoff by temporarily storing runoff and come in many shapes and sizes. They vary from simple swales, to constructed wetlands, to large grassy depressions in the middle of parks that are dry except right after a rain. Although their designs and appearance are slightly different, their functions and maintenance needs are similar.
