LAS VEGAS- Because to the wet monsoon season, Lake Mead has had an extremely busy summer.
Lake levels surged four feet in August, but the extra water came at the expense of constant cleaning and maintenance work.
According to the National Park Service, this summer has been plagued with flash floods, felled trees, and muddy rescues.
Pearce Ferry Road, Willow Beach Road, and Temple Bar are among the hardest damaged localities.
Nelson Road, River Mountain Loop Trail, and, most recently, Road.
Lake levels increased so swiftly that the launch ramp at Hemenway Harbor was swamped. It has now been changed, and boaters report that greater lake levels are now simpler to enter with their watercraft.
“I believe it’s just been a lot easier to put the boat in and the ramp,” boater adds.
Carroll, Michael “It simply seems like a little bit more space here on the pier.” It’s the most significant shift we’ve noticed.”
While Lake Mead’s levels have risen in the last month, the monsoon season began in mid-June, when lake levels were historically low.
Since then, the lake has concluded the monsoon season barely a foot lower than it began; compare this to last year, when the lake plummeted 3 feet, and 2020, when it dropped 6 feet.
