Public Infrastructure

Renovated in 2002, “Well 8” is Ritzville’s primary water supply.  In high demand summer irrigation or during periodic maintenance, two smaller wells are called into service.  A new “Well 9” is fully funded and designed. 

Ritzville’s sewer treatment facility is a lagoon type with four cells and was built in 2000. Our master sewer plan dictates that $50,000.00 a year is spent on improvements and maintenance to our collection system including pipes, mainline, manholes etc.

Ritzville has a pavement preservation plan in place that continually surveys current conditions, identifies needs, and makes annual repairs.
