Lake Levels are the Highest in 11 Years

Tahoe is brimming, nearly full for the first time in 11 years, and stunningly beautiful in all its blue-water glory.  This past winter, the Sierra snowpack was among the largest in recorded history. And then the hot weather hit, and the snow began to melt.  

When the first heat wave of the season hit in mid-June, more than 12 billion gallons of water flowed into the lake in a single week. Between June 16-23, the lake level rose four inches despite increased evaporation rates from the surface due to the heat. Water managers have been releasing water from the lake into the Truckee River throughout the summer to make roof for snow-melt runoff. To understand the significance of a four-inch gain in a week, consider that during the spring snow-melt season of 2015, the lake only rose 2.5 inches over several months.   Just look at the video below of the shoreline from September 2015, and see the dramatic difference in lake level.

On July 9, the lake level peaked at 6,229 feet, a tenth of a percent below the point when it reaches full capacity. The last time it reached near full capacity was 11 years ago. This is a huge milestone for a body of water that flirted with record-low levels amid a five-year drought. In the years of low precipitation, Tahoe's level dropped, creating massive beaches. Boat docks sat high and dry on these vast swaths of parched earth. 

This summer many of those low-lying areas that were uncovered are under water and the boats are bobbing in crystal blue waters again.  But Tahoe's water level is slowly going down by .12 to .24 inches a day. The amount of water going into the lake is now less than the amount of water going out.

No matter, the lake is gorgeous, and we hope readers will come up to enjoy its crystal blue waters this summer. And while you are in Tahoe, contact  Dan Spano to find your perfect Vacation Home at the lake.
