Cascade is Working Around the Clock to Keep the Lake Tapps Reservoir as Full as Possible

Everyone loves the sunny days of summer. But the dry weather means that the White River has much lower flows than normal. In fact, the White River is seeing some of the lowest flows recorded in the last 20 years. Cascade can only divert water into the reservoir when the White River is above certain levels, called instream flows, that are set by Cascade’s state water rights and agreements with the Lake Tapps Community Council, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians.
