Water Quality

Safe and Clean Quality Water

Cascade is all about safe and clean water.

Cascade works with the Washington Department of Ecology, Pierce County, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, and the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, in collecting and monitoring water quality data as well as assessing impacts of invasive species in Lake Tapps.

Cascade is working with all partners and residents to ensure best practices are observed in yard care, septic maintenance and other efforts to keep Lake Tapps healthy. Cascade partners with the Tacoma Pierce County Health Department on a water quality program called TappsWise. Click here for Cascade’s Natural Yard Care page.

When Cascade takes water from Lake Tapps for municipal drinking water use it will be treated to meet or exceed all federal, state and local standards.
