Capitol Lake Needs Your Help!

August 2014

Not dredged since 1986, the Lake is filling with sediment. Dredging is needed to deepen the lake and improve water quality. Capitol Lake is the Deschutes River Watershed's biggest and best asset for preventing and reducing water quality degradation in Budd Inlet.

Contact your Leadership

The links below will take you to the committee pages & ways to contact elected representatives. The majority of Olympia and Thurston County residents support a managed Lake. We need to be a vocal majority, not silent and overruled by a vocal and ill-informed minority of residents.
  • Ask for regular dredging and plant harvesting from Capitol Lake!
  • Tell them to stop procrastinating and get this in the budget
  • Lower future expenses by starting action NOW !

State Capitol Committee
Capitol Campus Design Advisory Committee

Almost every study and question that our State Capitol Committee needs answered to make an informed decision on the future of Capitol Lake is now available. We need effective government leadership to help shape a Community Plan for Our Urban Waterfront. Our choices come down to 3 alternatives:
  1. Natural Environments - Reconstruction of all tidal mudflats and Deconstruction of all man-made influences
  2. A Managed Urban Watershed (CLIPA's recommendation)
  3. Status Quo - Do Nothing
