Avista Mission Swale

Project Number: Z1500073SSDP


1508 E. Upriver Dr.




Avista is requesting a shoreline substantial development permit to construct a new 5,960 square foot bio-infiltration swale for treatment of stormwater and roof drainage collected into a manhole and pumped from another location on the Avista campus. Currently a portion of the campus’ stormwater system collects and directly discharges untreated into the Spokane River. The swale and associated disturbed ground will be re-vegetated with native and adaptive grasses, shrubs, and trees to reduce impacts and create additional wildlife habitat.


A decision has been issued on this proposal. It has been approved subject to conditions. This decision may be appealed to the City of Spokane Hearing Examiner within 14 calendar days of the date of this decision. This decision was issued November 17, 2015.
