Spill response

How we hold ourselves accountable

Protecting our natural resources also means being ready for the worst case scenarios. As much as we enforce safety and compliance, sometimes things happen beyond our control. When they do, we're ready to reduce potential harm to fish, wildlife, natural resources, water supplies, and your community.

What happens in an environmental emergency?

  • The Avista Environmental Compliance group springs into action. They're on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • If its an oil spill of any size originating from any of our facilities, lines or poles, we immediately implement emergency spill procedures.
  • We work with the appropriate local, state, and federal agencies to assess the situation and begin clean-up.

To report a spill, call (800) 227-9187.
