Lake Tapps Refill Update May 2015 Lake Tapps Reservoir Refill Update Cascade Water Alliance today issued an open letter to the Lake Tapps Community outlining the current status of the reservoir and the completion of the multi-million dollar multi-faceted set of construction projects that began in 2013.  The work was undertaken for the long term viability of the reservoir to the benefit of residents only, and it required drawing down of that reservoir.  Once the construction began and the flume was taken down in late October 2014, there was no ability to put water in the reservoir until the entire project was completed in March.

Lake Tapps has many fine homes lining it's shores but this is the first true multi family I've seen listed on the lake.  Built in 1988 this income producing property features everything a lake front home should, including a multi level brazillian ironwood deck and dock, boat lift and multiple view balconies! There are many possibilities with this driftwood point waterfront home.  Rent all 3 units for maximum income or keep one for yourself and rent the other 2.  With RV parking, it would be the perfect place for a snowbird lifestyle spending Summers on the lake and winters in the sun.    The lush grounds provide privacy and beauty for your tenants who will enjoy a truly rare opportunity to live in a lake front rental.

Lake Tapps is located in Pierce County, surrounded by the cities of Auburn, Bonney Lake, Buckley, and Sumner. Originally a series of smaller lakes, Lake Tapps was turned into a large reservoir for hydroelectric power generation in 1911. The plant ceased power production in 2004, but the large reservoir and its series of dikes remains in place. View Larger MapDriving Directions At 4.5 miles square miles of surface area, Lake Tapps has winding inlets and small islands, covering a total of about 45 miles of shoreline. There are plenty of popular fishing spots on the lake, and a large number of waterfront homes. Houses range from small fishing cabins to large custom luxury homes. While many waterfront homes on the lake are listed in the city of Lake Tapps, many will also be listed as Bonne...
