The group of King County cities and water districts that owns Lake Tapps will lower the water level starting Nov. 1 to allow people to do repairs, improvements and new construction on their lakeside property.

The lake is slated to be at its lowest point – about 535 feet, depending on the weather – from about Jan. 8 to mid-February, Cascade Water Alliance said in a news release.

The water level then will go up, with the goal of hitting 541.5 feet by mid-April, Cascade said in the release.

Property owners planning to do work must seek applicable licenses and permits, the release said.
