In October of 1972 Congress signed in to law a historic piece of legislation that to this day continues to help clean up and protect the Spokane River.  To honor the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, Spokane Riverkeeper is proud to present “Clean Water Act at 40: a Spokane River focused panel discussion”.  

This panel event will be moderated by Rick Eichstaedt, the Executive Director of the Center for Justice and Clean Water Act expert and will feature three panelists who will touch upon different areas that the Clean Water Act set out to address – a Fishable, Swimmable and Drinkable Spokane River.

Doors will open at 5:30 for socializing and networking before the panel discussion which will begin sharply at 6 p.m.  Moderator Rick Eichstaedt will begin the evening, giving each panelist time to present information to the audience, and leaving time for a Q and A.  Come prepared to learn about how the Clean Water Act has worked for the Spokane River, to learn about work being done to protect the River and protect human health, and to learn about how the Clean Water Act will continue to work for this community.
