OLYMPIA -- DES will begin work to address water leaks in the four mini-domes and 4th floor roof parapets of the Legislative Building Tuesday, Dec. 8. As buildings get older, their maintenance needs increase. This is apparent in the aging roof system on the historic Legislative Building, which is nearing the end of its useful life and has become more prone to water leaks and other issues.
Work to lower the water level of Capitol Lake on the evening of Tuesday, July 14 has been delayed until further notice. The Department of Enterprise Services planned to lower the Capitol Lake water level Tuesday to support City of Olympia Public Works Department work to install tide gates. A notice will be sent when this work is rescheduled.
If you have questions about the lake lowering, please call (360) 725-0014.
Washington state has again been recognized as a leader in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Department of Enterprise Services Fleet Operations Manager George Carter III recently accepted the National Conference of State Fleet Administrators (NCSFA) 2018 Environmental Leadership Award.
The tours are hosted by the Governor's Mansion Foundation, and will be at 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Sunday, July 29.
Constructed in 1908, the Georgian-style mansion is the oldest building on the state Capitol Campus. It boasts panoramic views of the city of Olympia, Capitol Lake, Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
