Thurston County Commissioner Tye Menser and Public Works staff have graciously agreed to a public
meeting with our Drainage District regarding the periodic flooding issues we have. We have flat ground
so nothing is going to fully solve our flooding problem but there may be steps that can be taken to
reduce the severity. We’ve worked with the Conservation District and County engineers for years to get
professional recommendations but have yet to get anything actionable other than clearing out
temporary blockages as soon as possible.

We view this as an opportunity to give the community a brief history of our efforts to date; hear any
suggestions the County or other experts may have; and most importantly hear from our residents. At a
minimum we hope everyone will walk away with a better understanding of the problem and the
complexity of potential solutions. No decisions will be on the agenda – just trying to get our arms around
the problem and potential solutions.

Again, we must be realistic when it comes to our flat ground but let’s respectfully hear everyone’s
thoughts – there may be at least a partial solution we haven’t thought of yet. Please mark your
calendars for 5 PM on November 30, 2022.
Your Scott Lake Drainage District Commissioner

Park Maintenance

Maintenance is working on the park in the next couple of weeks. Matt is marking off around the big trees and will be putting mulch around the base of the trees. The mulch and work he is doing will improve the health of the soil and help our trees to thrive for many years.

You might see some blue marking paint being used around the tree bases. This is to help Matt identify the marked off the base of the trees as he works through the park.

When it’s time to spread the mulch, your admin office will reach out to the community if you would like to help, we will identify a date and our community can help beautify and restore our park.


Roofing Update

Hello residents. FYI for you!!!

Some activity around our neighborhood today and in the following week.

SLMC is having all of our roofs patched and/or worked on. This will ensure that our water treatment, Community Center, common areas, etc. is being maintained. BestChoice Roofing is our company working on it.

Questions or concerns, please call or email your admin office.


Bylaws Updates

The Governance Committee has been working diligently on updating our Bylaws. They were written in 1962 and haven’t been updated since. While we don’t know the exact date they’ll finish, they felt it’s important to get awareness out to the community of the coming changes and further, the community ratifying them with a vote. We plan to have multiple town hall meetings to discuss the details of the bylaw changes, answer questions and hear concerns. We will post the dates of these town hall meetings soon, but the idea is that we’ll have multiple to accommodate your busy schedules. These will be held in person and over Zoom.

Cross Connection Survey

“In order to comply with Department of Health requirements and to help protect your water system, a cross connection program is required.  Cross connection is when there is a connection on your water service that could potentially allow contaminants back into the water system.  There are many different ways this could happen and our certified water operator, Northwest Water Systems, will be sending out a survey to collect information to determine if there is a risk of cross connection on your property. 

It is very important for you to fill the survey out as accurately as possible for SLMC and NWS to help assess that potential.  This survey will be included in your September 2022 water billing.  If a cross connection risk is found, SLMC and NWS will be working with the property owner to disconnect it or to install an acceptable protective measure.

Questions or concerns, please call your Admin office at 360 352 4787 or email us at office@scottlake.net
