LAKE TAHOE CLARITY LEVEL BOUNCES BACK AVERAGE CLARITY IMPROVED BY MORE THAN 10 FEET IN 2018

Lake Tahoe Clarity Level Bounces Back

Average Clarity Improved by More than 10 Feet in 2018

By UC Davis News and Media Relations on May 23, 2019 in Environment

A return to more normal weather and streamflow conditions in 2018 saw Lake Tahoe’s annual clarity value improve dramatically to 70.9 feet. This represents a 10.5-foot increase over the 2017 value. That is according to a report of Lake Tahoe clarity released by the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center.

Lake clarity can swing widely from day to day and year to year. Long-term averages help to smooth the effects of variable weather and lake conditions. The five-year average lake clarity is currently 70.3 feet, an increase of almost a foot from the previous five-year running average.

SEASONAL CLARITY VALUES 

Clarity is measured as the depth to which a 10-inch white disk, called a Secchi disk, remains visible when lowered into the water. In 2018, 26 individual Secchi depth readings were taken from January through December.

“In 2018, Lake Tahoe’s clarity regained the expected seasonal patterns that were disrupted by the extreme conditions of the previous year,” said TERC Director Geoffrey Schladow, a professor of engineering at UC Davis. “Clarity was expectedly at its lowest point in summer, and winter and fall had the highest values. Devising strategies to improve summer clarity in the long term is a high scientific priority.”

Clarity is typically lowest in the summer after spring runoff brings fine sediment particles and nutrients to the lake, and warmer temperatures and more sunlight stimulate algae growth. The lowest individual value was 50 feet in July 2018 , while the mean summer (June-September) clarity value was 61.7 feet. 

Spring runoff flows in 2018 were far lower and occurred earlier than in the record wet year of 2017. The quantities of suspended sediment washed into the lake from the major tributaries were 10-25% of the 2017 values. The biggest driver of summer clarity was the occurrence of high concentrations of the phytoplankton species Cyclotella gordonensis. This microscopic algae has become more prevalent in Lake Tahoe in recent years. Its very small size makes it a potent scatterer of light and a major factor in annual Secchi depth. 

Clarity tends to improve during the fall and winter months. The average winter (December-March) clarity was 73.5 feet, with one reading in March 2018 exceeding 100 feet of clarity.

MOVING FORWARD

Dozens of public and private partners at Lake Tahoe are working to reduce stormwater pollution from roads and urban areas and to restore streams and floodplains to minimize the transport of fine particles and nutrients that impact lake clarity. Partners are also working to restore natural wetlands and meadows that were displaced by past development and play an important role in filtering water before it enters the lake. 

That work is keeping hundreds of tons of fine sediment particle pollution out of Lake Tahoe each year, and the lake has been responding with an improved clarity trend over the past 20 years. The goal is to restore lake clarity back to its historic level of nearly 100 feet.

The Tahoe Science Advisory Council, a body comprised of scientists from UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, the University of Nevada, Reno, the Desert Research Institute, the United States Geological Survey and the United States Forest Service, are currently finalizing a new Science to Action Plan. This plan will identify key modeling and monitoring needs to more fully account for climate change impacts  on lake clarity and ecological processes.

“Research shows Lake Tahoe and other inland water bodies are warming faster than the oceans and atmosphere,” said Joanne S. Marchetta, executive director of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, which funded the analysis. “Seasonal weather extremes will most likely drive greater swings in clarity from year to year in the future, so it’s imperative we continue to invest in the lake’s restoration to combat new and emerging threats.”

NORTH LAKE TAHOE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT – ISO’S NEWEST CLASS 1 COMMUNITY

NORTH LAKE TAHOE FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT – ISO’S NEWEST CLASS 1 COMMUNITY

The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District was officially awarded a Public Protection Classification 1, the highest ranking possible through the Insurance Services Office (ISO) at the November 27th Board of Directors meeting. This change will be effective March 1, 2019 for Incline Village and Crystal Bay property owners.

Out of the 46,000 fire districts across the country, less 1% (329 fire districts) have a Classification 1. In the state of Nevada, there are three fire districts with a Classification 1 – North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Department and Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department. There are five areas of evaluation that are reviewed and considered when determining a classification level: Communication Infrastructure, Fire Mitigation Geographic’s, Fire Department, Water Supply, Community Risk Reduction. We would like to thank and acknowledge Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) for providing outstanding water supply distribution and capability. The Water Supply component is 40% of the total rating schedule.

ISO’s Public Protection Program (PPC) plays an important role in the underwriting process at insurance companies. ISO is the leading supplier of data and analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry. Most insurers use PPC classifications for underwriting and calculating premiums for residential, commercial and industrial properties. This information is an essential part of their decision making when deciding what business to write, coverage’s to offer or prices to charge for personal or commercial property insurance.

Each insurance company independently determines the premiums it charges its policyholders. The way an insurer uses ISO’s information public fire protection may depend on several things – the company’s fire-loss experience, rate-making methodology, underwriting guidelines, and its marketing strategy.

PPC is important to communities and fire departments. Communities whose PPC improves may get lower insurance prices. PPC also provides fire departments with a valuable benchmark and is used by many departments as a valuable tool when planning, budgeting and justifying fire department improvements.
