Wednesday’s rainy weather aside, the communities around Lake Tapps are quickly entering the fun and sun season of water recreation. But with three drownings on Tapps in 2012, public agencies are urging swimmers to exercise greater caution as they splash about.
A SwimSafe community meeting will be held at North Tapps Middle School from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to educated the community about temperatures on the glacier-fed lake, the limits of the human body in water, the importance of properly fitted lifejackets and what to do in an emergency.
The meeting is sponsored by the city of Bonney Lake, Bonney Lake police, Cascade Water Alliance, Dieringer School District, Sumner School District, East Pierce Fire and Rescue and Pierce County.
North Tapps Middle School is located at 20029 12th St. E. on the north end of Lake Tapps.
