Blue-Green Algae Sample Taken for Scott Lake

From your Thurston County Environmental Health Division

Dear Scott Lake Residents and Lake Users,

An algae sample was taken Monday, October 22, 2018 at Lake St. Clair. Toxin results should be available later this week or early next week, at which time we will send out an email with those results.

Please avoid contact with lake water in areas with visible algae or algae scum on the surface. Do not drink the lake water. Keep pets and children out of the water if there is an algae bloom. When fishing, it is safest to catch and release any fish caught during an algae bloom.

Please pass this information on to your neighbors. More information about blue-green algae can be found on the Environmental Health website.

If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 360-867-2598.

Sincerely,

Water Quality Staff

WATER SYSTEM FLUSH – October 22ND,23RD, 24TH

BrownWaterIn order to ensure we are delivering the cleanest water possible, we are undergoing a routine water system flush October 22nd through the 24th. As usual, Clearwater Utility Services (our service provider) will begin the flush at the top of Champion hill. They will work their way down through the community. As they are working, there should be sandwich boards placed in the area to notify residents. If water services are used while your area is being flushed, you may experience brown water. If this occurs, simply allow your faucet to run until the water runs clear. If you have any questions, please contact the Scott Lake Office during business hours at (360) 352-4787.

Book Club

Please join the Scott Lake Book Club!

It’s free!

We meet once a month, usually on a Saturday evening for snacks and to discuss the current book we are reading.

We choose our books from the Timberland Library Book Club set list, so we don’t have to pay for books.

The Scott Lake Book Club is open to friends and family outside of Scott Lake.

For more info please refer to the Scott Lake Community Family Support Group FB events tab or contact Deanna Ball @360-790-3638.

Hypodermic Needles

Please be cautious as walking in our parks.  A few community members have indicated finding hypodermic needles laying on the ground in our parks.

If you come across a needle, please contact Mike at the Scott Lake Office at (360) 352-4787.

December Emergency Preparedness – Home Hazard Hunt

All of Washington State has the potential of being impacted by a major earthquake.  Earthquakes strike suddenly and without warning.  When they occur, they cause the ground to undulate and shake, perhaps violently.  Buildings – and their contents – are vulnerable to this rocking and rolling.  Fortunately, experts teach how to secure homes to their foundations, and contents to wall studs.

  • Identify potential hazards that will need to be bolted/strapped: such as water heater, tall furniture, cabinets; items that are heavy, breakable, expensive, precious, and/or toxic.
  • Make a timeline to complete these safety projects.

November Emergency Preparedness – Shelter in Place

 

Shelter in PlaceYour house provides a good first-layer barrier against airborne chemical agents.  Additional protection is achieved by tightly sealing one room of your home that you have pre-designated and prepared.

  • Designate a “safe’ room, one that can be easily and quickly sealed using plastic sheeting and duct tape.
  • Cut pieces to fits windows, vents, doors; store in in a bin with other supplies: blankets, water, snacks, batter-operated radio, etc.
