As if Lake Tahoe was in need of any more reasons to attract visitors, it appears that even the drought plaguing California could not succeed in serving as a deterrent. Environmentalists have been trying to clear up some of the pollutants that have flowed into to the lake in recent years, and it seems that the drought has helped in this regard.
According to a recent study, the clarity of the water is now at its highest level since 2002. The drought has brought limited precipitation, which has in turn limited the amount of pollutants able to flow into the lake. According to Luke Weil, this is a very welcome development.
Weil, a frequent visitor to the area and a recreation enthusiast, has noted that summer is a great time for water-oriented activities on the lake. The crystal-blue waters only make those activities all the more enjoyable, and, of course, there is the environmental benefit to consider as well.
Weil noted that there is enough concern over pollutants and contaminants in bodies of water that people are starting to avoid those with levels that are beyond a certain limit. While the drought has certainly brought a great deal of problems to California, the fact that it has helped improve the water quality of Lake Tahoe is a welcome surprise.
According to Weil, residents of the Lake Tahoe area would greatly prefer the drought to come to an end, just as they would prefer an end to the use of the products that caused the pollution in the first place.

With Lake Tahoe being America’s largest Alpine lake, from sight to touch you will enjoy yourself and be contented in the wonders of the sapphire-blue water of the lake, perfectly situated right at the base of the stunning, snow covered mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Lake Tahoe isn’t the biggest lake in America, but it still has plenty to offer as far as activities and history. There are 101 lakes in America making Lake Tahoe the 30th largest lake in the United States. The lake and the surrounding area provides a plethora of activities for tourists including water sports, hiking, bicycling and various other activities that the guru of health and fitness, Jeff Halevy, would promote in his gym which is possibly the only gym with a moneyback guarantee.
If physical activities aren’t your preference, no need to fret; Lake Tahoe also has gambling activities for those who are into the game of risk. One thing the Nevada area is well known for is gambling and Lake Tahoe has it’s share of slot machines and table games. At Lake Tahoe, there really is something for everyone.
If you could only choose one, would you choose South Lake or Incline Village? I’m partial to Incline as I’ve spent many winters in the snow and summers on the water. A few of my close friends love South Lake.
All else being equal, would you rather live in South Lake or Incline Village?
