TranscriptionSegment 55 Air Date: Feb. 17, 2004 Anchor Intro: It has been one year since we first began the Lake Tahoe Report here on KOLO News Channel 8. Tonight, Shelly Purdy takes a look back at what we've shown you over the past year and takes a look forward at what we've got planned in the future.

Dozens of research and restoration projects are underway at Lake Tahoe all with the same goal in mind: to protect the lake and restore its water quality. In the past year we've shown you erosion control projects, wetlands restoration programs, roadway drainage systems, fire management policies, wildlife research and of course a myriad of water quality projects all underway at Lake Tahoe. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent. And, the researchers, educators, volunteers and government workers here at Tahoe have dedicated their lives to the cause. You might wonder why all the fuss?? That's not a tough question to answer. Tahoe on a crummy day is just as magnificent as it is on a beautiful day. And whether you live here or just visit here, the health and quality if this lake affects us all. ((S/U Shelly Purdy)) "We hope you've enjoyed learning about Lake Tahoe over the past year. And, we want to know what you think about the Lake Tahoe Report. Visit our website at to make comments, ask questions, or suggest future story ideas.
