Higher Lake Levels Increase Risk of Damage
Spring rain and recent snow melt have succeeded in filling Lake Tahoe guaranteeing a great boating season. We want to remind all of you that rising levels also heighten the possibility of damage to your property.
Piers - Damage caused by snow and ice build-up, or uneven melting, should be inspected regularly. As the lake level rises, the upsurge caused by strong waves can also dislodge key structural elements. Keep a watchful eye to ensure your pier does not suffer damage that can worsen as spring approaches.
Buoys - Many buoy chains are too short to compensate for rising water levels. Be sure you watch for submerged floats, and schedule an early inspection this boating season to ensure your block, tackle, and float are in safe and secure working condition.
Safe Boating - With continuing spring rain showers, our Coast Guard warns all boaters to remain cautious at all times, and to be on the look out for floating and submerged logs and debris.
