    Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer Geologic History. The geology of the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie area is the result of multiple geologic events that have occurred over hundreds of millions of years creating both our landscape and the aquifer of today. Most of the drinking water in the Spokane area is taken from the Spokane Aquifer, an underground river that flows into the region from the mountains northeast of Spokane. There are 25 lakes in Spokane County. There are 75 lakes within a 50 mile radius of the city of Spokane.

      I'm having trouble reconciling bad news about pollution in the Spokane river with the claim that Spokane's tap water is "safe," seeing as the river interacts with the aquifer along most of its length. Can't river-borne PCBs, mining waste with lead, etc, get into the aquifer easily? Spokane River Now or Never A clean, flowing Spokane River will support the return of salmon, robust recreational uses and local businesses, extraordinary river aesthetics, and other beneficial uses. On increasingly hot summer days (note: climate crisis), thousands of people go down to the river to swim, fish, boat, and seek spiritual renewal. The Spokane River is the people’s river.

The surface outlet for Lake Coeur d'Alene is the Spokane River, which is the only watercourse over the Aquifer that remains on the surface for an extended distance. The Spokane aquifer is an unconfined aquifer consisting of coarse sand, gravel, cobbles, and boulders deposited during several catastrophic glacial outburst floods--known as the Spokane Floodsof Pleistocene time.

The aquifer is one of the most productive in the United States, and, as the only significant source of good-quality water supply in the Spokane Valley, it has been designated as a.

Hydrologic and chemical data indicate that the Spokane River recharges the Spokane Valley/ Rathdrum Prairie aquifer along a mile reach between Post Falls, Idaho, and Spokane, Washington. Ground-water levels in the near-river aquifer (less than feet from the river) indicate variably saturated conditions below the river and a ground-water Cited by: 4.

The artesian well sits below the water table at the bottom of U-shaped aquifers. Pressure from water in the long sides of the aquifer pushes the water up the well shaft.

In Spokane Valley, the aquifer and the river are almost one and the same. The aquifer draws from the river. Between the state line and the eastern Spokane Valley city limits, there are places where the river practically disappears during dry months as the aquifer draws what it needs.

(2) Based on the hydrogeology of the SVRP aquifer as described in U.S. Geologic Survey Scientific Investigations Reportecology determines that surface water in the Spokane River and groundwater within the SVRP aquifer are hydraulically connected.

New appropriations from the SVRP aquifer will be managed to protect the instream flows. The numerical model was used to enhance understanding of the flow system (including a water budget for the aquifer system) and its relation to surface water, and to test alternative management strategies.

Generalized Summary. The Yakima River basin aquifer system underlies about 6, square miles in south-central Washington.Water flowing in the Spokane River mostly comes from the Aquifer and Post Falls dam. The Aquifer and the Spokane River are effectively one. Water waste by thepeople who take water from the Aquifer is harming river flows by intercepting water that otherwise would flow to the river.

Pump the Aquifer, rob the River.The Spokane River and the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie aquifer are fed from approximately the same watershed areas (Figures 1 & 4).

The early scientific studies of the drainage concentrated primarily on the Spokane River, first on it's location then upon it's water budget. Studies on the aquifer have a .
