Lake Tapps Fall Drawdown Scheduled

The reservoir, which is full now, will continue to gradually become lower as no additional water is being added. On Thursday, Nov. 1, Cascade will begin to actively lower reservoir levels to approximately elevation 538.5 feet, where it will likely remain for the rest of the fall and winter. This drawdown is necessary for the integrity of the dikes and to ensure safety from wind, storm and wave action during the winter months. As usual, residents should watch the drawdown and make appropriate decisions regarding watercraft and other property, but it is recommended that boats be out of the water over the next week.
