Regional Water Organization Launching Google Poll Within the Basin
The Palouse – The Palouse Basin Aquifer Committee (PBAC) ensures a long-term, quality water supply for the Palouse Basin region. They are conducting a Google Poll to gather a baseline of local water understanding, water use, and water values from residents on the Palouse.
To participate, visit our website (palousebasin.org) or go to this link: https://forms.gle/ewZ7yLi9ecVetPvx7 The poll will run from September 8 to October 6 and is open to anyone living on the Palouse. As an incentive to participate, PBAC is giving away a $100 Avista Housewarming Gift Certificate. The gift certificate will be given to one lucky person who takes the survey and enters their email.

“As part of PBAC’s “Conserve, Stabilize, Thrive” campaign, it’s important to inform our communities of ways to conserve water, the work being done to stabilize aquifer water levels, and ultimately ensure our residents will thrive in the years ahead,” notes Korey Woodley, PBAC Executive Manager.
Additionally, PBAC recently established a Stakeholder Engagement Group (SEG) to engage with the community members while working towards stabilizing the aquifer. The SEG provides input to PBAC through ongoing dialogue among a broad range of interested parties, focusing mainly on the four water supply alternatives with associated engineering and environmental evaluations and analyses, research activities, and public involvement efforts.
PBAC uses a collaborative, data-driven approach to provide strategic long-term water supply solutions for the Palouse Basin and is comprised of the cities of Moscow and Pullman, Latah, and Whitman counties as well as Washington State University and the University of Idaho. As the Palouse Basin’s groundwater authority, they are committed to researching, analyzing, and providing unbiased data and solutions to our communities regarding our region’s water supply issues.
