Water is critical to all life on Earth. The clear rivers, beautiful lakes and pure drinking water are reasons many of us chose to make Northern Idaho home. KEA is a leading advocate for water quality protection and water conservation across the Inland Northwest.
We work to protect the surface beauty our water presents, as well as, flows in the Spokane River and the water quality in the Spokane River, Coeur d’Alene Lake, Hayden Lake and our other waterways which have degraded due to elevated phosphorous levels, sediment and stormwater pollution.
We also work to reinforce and improve water conservation measures in area communities.
