The following is a press release from Cascade Water Alliance:
Cascade Water Alliance announced it will begin the spring fill of the Lake Tapps Reservoir on Sunday, March 1. This is to allow Pierce County to finish upgrading its bulkhead and improving park amenities at North Tapps Park. Cascade is working closely with Pierce County as it completes the project, and does not anticipate any delay in reaching the agreed upon reservoir level of 541.5 feet by April 15.
Residents who wish to do any work on their property, bulkheads, docks, etc. must obtain all the appropriate, required permits and a Cascade license prior to beginning any work. Further, residents should keep in mind as they do work on their property, especially bulkheads, that Cascade has the authority to raise reservoir levels to elevation 543 feet under current water rights, so any new or modified bulkheads should be built to at least elevation 544 feet. Cascade raises the reservoir to 543 feet once a year for a day or so as a reminder.
