Many low-lying areas that were exposed when the lake level was declining during the drought will be inundated with water. The docks will be bobbing in crystal blue waters once again.
Straddling the California - Nevada border, Tahoe is the sixth largest lake in the United States, an outdoor playground for people around the world, and the main water source for the Reno-Sparks, Nevada, area. The renowned ecological wonder is fed by 63 tributaries that drain 505 square miles known as the Lake Tahoe Watershed. With a vast surface area of 191 square miles, Tahoe requires an immense amount of water to fill, especially because roughly 100 billion gallons of water evaporates annually.

"People told me they would never go after something big like that and he's 92-pounds, so people were wrong," says Debbie Rucker, who says Gabriel, her 92 pound German Shepherd was attacked by a pack coyotes last month.
Rucker says it was around 7:30 in the evening when she let Gabriel out for a bathroom break and then heard an eerie crackling noise and her dog begin to yelp.
"I heard it and started running because I saw that he wasn't right by me. They had ripped open both sides of his back and they had chewed up one of his legs," says Rucker.
Rucker says she and her husband rushed Gabriel to the animal hospital where at first, the veterinarian said there is no way coyotes would attack a dog so large, "But within 30 seconds of looking at his wounds, he looked up and said there must have been a bunch of them," said Rucker.
