Lake Tapps Refill Update from Cascade Water Alliance

Lake Tapps areaCascade Water Alliance began refilling the Lake Tapps reservoir system over the weekend of March 13-14, 2015. The speed of the refill is dependent on the available flows in the river.  The target for reaching recreational lake levels remains Memorial Day weekend.

The system is opening back up after more than seven months of being down for significant repairs, maintenance and improvement. Cascade is currently filling the eight mile long flowline and settling basins in order to test the new facilities (headgates, a new concrete flume and fish screens).  Barring unforeseen circumstances residents should start seeing Lake Tapps Reservoir levels begin to rise mid-week.

View the original press release at http://cascadewater.org/2015/03/16/important-lake-tapps-reservoir-information/

For the latest in lake level information and for the agreements regarding lake levels please visit http://www.cascadewater.org/lake_tapps_recreational_lake_levels.php

Provide input & learn more about the Fennel Creek Trail at public meetings in April & May

Fennel Creek TrailThe City of Bonney Lake is hosting several public meetings to gather public input and provide information on the next segment of the Fennel Creek Trail.

These meetings will all be held at the Bonney Lake Justice & Municipal Center at 9002 Main Street East, Bonney Lake, WA 98391 (directions). Staff and consultants will be on hand to answer questions and receive public input.

The City of Bonney Lake has been planning for the Fennel Creek Trail for many years. The trail master plan was adopted in 2007, and the first mile of trail was completed near the Willowbrook community in 2013. The City is now planning for the next 1.5 mile segment of trail that will extend from the current trail terminus to Sumner-Buckley Highway. The proposed trail is expected to roughly parallel the Fennel Creek, though the precise location has not yet been determined.

For additional information, please contact Gary Leaf at (253) 447-3282 or visit www.citybonneylake.org/projects and view City/Public Projects > Fennel Creek Trail project.
