Description Lake Tapps, in Pierce County, was monitored from July 2004 through June 2005 to document current conditions at four lake stations and three tributary stations over the course of a year. Results are compiled, evaluated for quality, and summarized in this report. Nutrient concentrations indicate that Lake Tapps is nutrient poor and should contain little algae (oligotrophic). Other indicators, such as chlorophyll concentrations and hypolimnetic oxygen depletion, were indicative of oligotrophic to slighty mesotrophic (moderately productive) conditions
