Boating not advised at Lahontan Reservoir

July 30, 2008

SILVER SPRINGS, Nev. — Severe drought conditions have contributed to the rapid decrease in water levels at Lahontan Reservoir. The reservoir may reach near historic low levels before the end of summer.

The Silver Springs and North Shore Marina docks have been removed from the water, and the launching ramps are closed.

Dropping reservoir levels continue to expose underwater hazards, and boating is not advised. Visitors are advised to use extreme caution when boating on Lahontan Reservoir and to do so at their own risk.
