The completed new floating cover for the reservoir.

Project description

The Lake Forest Park Reservoir is located in the City of Lake Forest Park and is part of Seattle Public Utilities' regional drinking water system. The reservoir had a floating cover that was installed in 2001 and was designed to last about 20 years. Due to increased maintenance and repair work needed to keep the aging cover operational, SPU replaced it with a new floating cover.


The Lake Forest Park Reservoir is located north of NE 195th St between 45th Ave NE and 47th Ave NE in the City of Lake Forest Park.

Project results

This work enables SPU to continue supplying quality drinking water to people in the greater Seattle area.


Construction began in May 2021 and was completed in September 2022.
