About IWAC

The Idaho Washington Aquifer Collaborative is a newly organized  501 (C)(3) corporation made up of Idaho and Washington water purveyors.  A pdf of the  IWAC Purpose and Goals can be downloaded.


The purpose of the Idaho Washington Aquifer Collaborative (IWAC) is to work together to maintain and/or enhance water quality and quantity for present and future generations by developing management strategies which benefit the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer (as defined by the USGS, “the Aquifer”) and the Spokane River region.  IWAC will facilitate regional dialogues and studies that result in recommendations for policy directions and shared stewardship of the Aquifer and the Spokane River, in a collaborative manner.


The objective of developing management strategies is to address regional water supply and demand needs over the next 50 to 100 years. The specific goals of IWAC are organized within the categories of organization, water quantity, conservation, water quality, and public awareness and education.
