Lake Tapps refill to begin March 12

According to a press release from Cascade, the water purveyor will be doing operational tests on the fish screen facilities and residents should expect to see the lake rise as much as one foot per day during the refill.

The Cascade Water Alliance this week announced plans to begin refilling Lake Tapps March 12 with the goal of reaching a full pool by April 15.

According to a press release from Cascade, the water purveyor will be doing operational tests on the fish screen facilities and residents should expect to see the lake rise as much as one foot per day during the refill.

Cascade Water Alliance purchased Lake Tapps in 2009 and has worked with local community groups on a schedule to drain and refill the lake each year, with a full, recreational height of 545 feet above seas level.
