Have you started thinking about your outside spaces and how much water, time, energy and money you invest each year to keep it looking nice? Does saving water, and money too, sound like the best plan?
Let’s talk about Wisescape®
“Wisescape promotes water-efficient landscaping on the Palouse, taking into consideration landscape design, reduction of resource use, soil enhancements, and plant selection. A practical and aesthetically pleasing design for all seasons, limiting tra...ditional turf, plant selection based on local climate, and efficient irrigation methods are also key elements.”
Wisescape® on its own can lead to fantastic savings through reduced water usage, but partnered with the lawn removal credits offered by the City of Pullman you will feel like you’ve hit the jackpot!
Download a copy of the Wisescape Guidebook here: http://bit.ly/2FH2HV3 or pick up a copy at City Hall in the hall display outside of the Finance/Administration office or up in the Public Works/Planning office.

We are excited to welcome you home Washington State University Pullman students. Eyes up, slow down, and hands on the wheel please!
At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. There are 69 flights of stairs and 1,356 steps between the ground and the highly acclaimed observation deck overlooking the City of Seattle. Each year, firefighters from around the globe are invited to this location to participate in a sold-out stairclimb competition, benefiting the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
On-air and in full turn...out gear, competitors face a challenging climb as they race to reach the top of the tower. On March 11th, City of Pullman Fire Department firefighter/medic Steve Potratz-Lee took first place overall, beating out 1,854 other competitors to reach the observation deck in just 10 minutes and 55 seconds.
The City of Pullman congratulates Steve on this incredible feat! We are thankful to have skilled and dedicated professionals like Potratz-Lee answering calls for help in our community!
This morning the City of Pullman is working with an outside contractor to replace a pump at our Skyline Booster Station.
Following installation of the new pump, it will be tested which could lead to some residents experiencing temporary water discoloration. If discoloration occurs, it would be on the south side of town, and due to the water flow pattern being altered. While discolored water is not aesthetically pleasing, it is also not harmful to use.
You will soon see new signage at the following railroad track locations identifying “Tracks Out of Service”:
