Today, despite our environmental laws, the Spokane River is chock full of nasty pollutants and our aquifer – which provides drinking water and river recharge – is squeezed daily by unsustainable water withdrawals.
Prop. 1 would establish the highest protections for the River and Aquifer – recognizing their rights to exist; it then provides for us – as Spokane residents – the ability to enforce those rights.
Prop. 1 is about living within our means, so that we leave behind a healthy river and aquifer for future generations.
