Mono Lake is rising

July 8th, 2019 by Robbie, Restoration Field Technician

Last month we measured Mono Lake’s level as 6382.2 feet above sea level on June 3. This month we measured 6382.7 feet, an impressive half-foot rise. This falls right in line with our “likely range” forecast, with more lake rise to come in July.

Be sure to check back with us in August—hopefully Mono Lake will rise past the 6383-foot threshold.
