Release from Liability: Recognizing that the ALSC, a non-profit neighborhood based organization run solely on a volunteer basis, will do its best to ensure a safe experience, it is important to understand that participation by any member(s) or non-member(s) in any activities sponsored by the ALSC is done so at the participants own risk.

Water, Water Everywhere!

As rain continues to fall, the flow of emails sent in to the Shore Club email inbox from community members is increasing as well, offering comments about the height of the lake water and asking if something should be done about it.

Partially Submerged Docks and Fire-pit
A quick search of the internet led one neighbor to King Country Storm Water Services for SeaTac. However the published number on the County website when dialed received no response. The line just kept ringing with no one answering, no opportunity to leave a voicemail message. So they inquired with us asking if we knew who to contact.

Our search led us to Don Robinett, Stormwater Compliance Manager with the City of SeaTac. Don promptly responded to our request for information. He confirmed that City resources do not have the ability to adjust the water level of Angle Lake at will. Don also informed us that a manmade overflow is present in the southeast corner of the lake and allows drainage when the lake level rises above the rim of the outlet. The City does not own or control this outlet; however public works staff does periodically check to ensure that the drain is functioning properly and is not obstructed or blocked. 

Typically, our wettest months are November, December and January. If history is any indication, we should be at the maximum height for the season and should start see a decline from this point forward.

Leadership Can’t Be Taught. It Can Only Be Learned.

If you're someone who routinely raises your hand to fill a leadership role when your community needs you, then you are the type of individual that city leaders are encouraging to enroll in the Community Leadership Academy being offered this spring. 

The objective of the program is to enhance community involvement while sharing information about how city government operates. The academy will include presentations by City officials responsible for services ranging from public safety and street maintenance to the local court system, policy making and budgeting. All City departments will participate in the interactive information sessions.  

Many of the presentations will take place at City Hall, 4800 South 188th Street. Some may include tours of facilities, such as a fire station, or “field trips” to other City locations such as the community center. 

The nine session academy will take place Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30 p.m. beginning April 21st and running through June 9th and culminate in a presentation at the June 14th Council meeting. Participation is open to SeaTac residents, business owners, service providers and students 18 years or older who live, work or attend school in SeaTac.  

More information and an enrollment application is available at:

Space is limited to a maximum of 30 participants.
Applications are due no later than April 1st (no foolin’!).
