Lake Tahoe Drops Below Natural Rim
Water has stopped flowing from Lake Tahoe into the Truckee River after the lake dropped below its natural rim –and below the level of its spillways.
It´s not likely to rise above the rim until rain or snow begins refilling the lake.
Right now, river flows are being sustained with water released from Boca Reservoir but that flow will be shut off tomorrow.
After that, river flows through Reno should diminish quickly in yet another sign of a drought now in its fifth year.
