A welcome break between weather systems bathes Capitol lake in Olympia with a sliver of sunshine Jan. 27th as the Department of Enterprise Services plans a public meeting about the long-term management of Capitol Lake from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 29 at the 1500 Jefferson Street building in Olympia. The meeting will bring together multiple government agencies and other stakeholders with the overarching goal of working together as a body to find a path forward on whether to keep the existing lake, return it to an estuary -- the area where freshwater from the Deschutes River would mix with saltwater of Puget Sound -- or a hybrid of the two.
