Cascade Hosts In-Person Lake Tapps Community Open House, June 6 from 6 to 8 pm

Cascade Water Alliance invites the public to join an in-person Lake Tapps community meeting and open house on Thursday, June 6 from 6-8 pm, to learn more about how everyone can help keep Lake Tapps Reservoir clean, healthy, and safe. The community meeting is free and open to all. The meeting will be held at North Tapps Middle School, 20029 12th Street East, Bonney Lake.

Lake Tapps is a recreational gem of the region, especially for the homeowners who live along its shore. But it’s also a working reservoir owned and operated to eventually provide municipal drinking water to members of the Cascade Water Alliance. Keeping Lake Tapps clean and healthy is up to everyone who enjoys the lake today and into the future.

At the community meeting on June 6, neighbors will learn about what’s happening at Lake Tapps. Cascade staff and representatives from our partner agencies around the lake – Pierce County, Bonney Lake, East Pierce Fire and Rescue, Tacoma Pierce County Health Department, and Washington State Fish and Wildlife – will be on hand to talk about projects, operations, provide information about ways to keep Lake Tapps clean and safe, and answer questions. Come learn more about SwimSafe, TappsWise natural yard care, milfoil and more.

Cascade purchased the 100-plus year-old White River system and Lake Tapps Reservoir from Puget Sound Energy in 2009. Since then, Cascade has invested tens of millions of dollars to keep the reservoir infrastructure reliable and the water healthy.
