Lake Tapps rising to operational summer levels | Cascade Water Alliance

Come May 1, the lake will be full and ready for summer use.

The following is a press release from Cascade Water Alliance:

Next week, Cascade Water Alliance will raise the Lake Tapps Reservoir to approximately elevation 543 feet, the maximum allowable level at which Cascade can operate.

The Reservoir will reach this elevation about May 1 and will then be drawn down slightly to normal recreational summer levels.

Cascade has raised the Reservoir to the maximum allowed at least once each year since it took ownership in late 2009, as a reminder to homeowners that this is the maximum fill level under operating agreements with the Lake Tapps Community Council.

After the maximum fill,Cascade will keep the reservoir between elevation 541.5 to 543 feet, usually at about 541.7 to 542.7 feet, through late September, weather dependent.
