Reminder: Cascade lowering Lake Tapps level

As 2013 comes to a close, Cascade wants to remind those living around and near Lake Tapps that, per agreements with the Lake Tapps Community Council, Cascade began lowering the lake level on Nov. 1, and will begin drawing the lake down on Jan. 2.

Residents will notice a quick drop of the lake – about six inches per day depending on additional rainfall to a level of approximately 533 feet so Cascade can perform dike repairs and other transportation related repairs can be completed.

Spring refill is expected to begin around March 1.

Should residents choose to do any work during this period, it is required that they obtain all necessary permits as well as a license from Cascade.
