People swimming in a lake

Dear Pierce County Residence,

During recent Summer seasons recreational activity in Spanaway lake has been halted by toxic algae blooms. To make the lake safe again for summer activities we must ensure that we reduce fertilizer runoff into the watershed by properly applying product, choosing a variety that requires one coating a year, or planting hardy native species in your lawn that don’t require fertilizer. It’s up to our community whether or not we want to make our natural assets available to us!
