Workshop to be held Dec. 1 for Lake Tapps boat management plan

A community-based team developing a boat management plan for Lake Tapps will hold a public workshop Dec. 1 aimed at receiving input from area residents and others who use the lake for recreational activities. The workshop will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Sumner High School Performance Center, 1707 Main St., Sumner. The planning effort was directed by a County Council resolution sponsored by Councilmember Shawn Bunney, a Lake Tapps resident. He co-chairs the Lake Tapps Task Force with County Executive John Ladenburg. The Task Force has been working to save the man-made 2,700-acre lake from being drained following Puget Sound Energy's announcement in the late 1990s that it no longer could operate the White River Hydroelectric Project profitably. The company stopped electricity generation operations at the lake earlier this year.
