May 15, 2017

A dive team from Tacoma Police Department was at Wapato Lake on Monday, May 15 to investigate a vehicle discovered in the lake. The vehicle was found after Metro Parks treated the 34-acre lake last week to improve water quality.

The car is submerged in the deepest part of the lake, which is about 13 feet of water. It is upside down and buried to the windows.

Recovery of the vehicle is planned for Thursday morning, June 1.  Please refer questions to the Tacoma Police Department.
