Seeing Clearly at Lake Tahoe
In the 1800s, Lake Tahoe waters lost their clarity as a result of logging in the area. When logging activity reduced, the waters regained their clarity. Today's urbanization is having the same effect with waters losing clarity at the rate of one foot a year. History shows that the lake can regain its clarity if given a chance. "But unlike the environmental impacts of the 1800s, urbanization isn't going to stop."
