2023 Lake Tapps Reservoir Drawdown

Cascade Water Alliance has announced the 2023 Lake Tapps Reservoir drawdown. Due to the dry and warm weather conditions, Cascade is not able to add any additional water to the reservoir in September and October, so reservoir levels are likely to start dropping. Cascade will begin the active fall drawdown on November 1 and will bring the reservoir level down from its current approximately 542.3 feet elevation to approximately 538-539 feet elevation for the fall and winter.  This drawdown is necessary for the integrity and maintenance of the dikes and to ensure safety from wind, storm, and wave action during the winter months.
