Tahoe is the sixth-largest lake in the United States, and it flirted with record-low levels amid a five-year drought that ended in 2017.
Also, Tahoe's water level is likely to reach its peak late in the season as a robust snow pack slowly melts through summer, feeding the reservoir and the Truckee River continuously for months to come.
As of Tuesday, the lake level was at 6,227.94 feet with only about a foot of rise needed to hit full capacity.
Global warming is causing the high water levels. We need a tax on Tahoe water...ReplyDelete
Truckee is very high in Reno and points East, and the canal through Fallon is about to spill out of its banks onto the road.ReplyDelete
Got pics from last weekend in Reno, and drive down the canal every day.
