UC Davis just released their annual State of The Lake Report, which has studied Lake Tahoe's chemistry, clarity, and biology since 1968. The report found that that all-important measure of Lake Tahoe's health - water clarity - increased from last year, with visitors now able to see some 75.3 feet down into the lake, close to a stated goal of 78. However, climate change is starting to make its presence felt, with this year marking the highest average annual surface temperature and snow decreasing as a mix of the total precipitation over the past 102 years by 15%.
