SPOKANE -- Spokane County officials are taking further steps to protect its employees and the public during the COVID-19 outbreak by limiting access to the fourth floor of the Public Works Building until further notice. The fourth floor is the location for the Environmental Services Department, including Sewer Billing and the Regional Solid Waste System.

"If you need to make your sewer payment in person – please use the dropboxes that are available in the County Courthouse," Public Works information and outreach manager Martha Lou Wheatley-Billeter wrote in the email. "One location is just inside the main entrance to the Courthouse and the other is in the Treasurer’s Office.

Monthly sewer charges can be paid by telephone using the resident's bank account, debit card or credit card. Call 1-866-315-6352 for more information. Online payments can be done through a credit or debit card at
