General Information

  • Lake Tahoe Facts,” Tahoe Weekly, 2017-2018. Excerpt: “The Tahoe Basin is mostly granite, with little topsoil, and therefore few nutrients have washed into the lake to promote the growth of algae and other organisms that make water murky. As well, 40 percent of the precipitation falling into the Tahoe Basin, lands directly on the lake. The remaining precipitation drains through the decomposed granite soil found in marshes and meadows, creating a good filtering system for water. Lake Tahoe’s large volume, relatively small watershed to the lake and the surrounding geology are the primary reasons for its naturally clear waters.”
