TranscriptionSegment 63 - Pathway 2007 Air Date: April 13 ((Anchor Intro)) The agencies at Lake Tahoe that manage the waterways, forests and ecosystems of the Tahoe Basin are now in the process of updating the area's regional plan. And, your input is needed. Shelly Purdy has details of how you can get involved in tonight's Lake Tahoe Report. ((Take PKG)) ((Track 1)) Regional plans aren't really a riveting topic of discussion. But at Lake Tahoe, the regional plan that's being written right now will determine the future of the lake for the next 20 years. For the first time, the various agencies at Tahoe are working together to write a, consistent regional plan that can be used to update other individual agency plans such as the Forest Service's Land Management Plan and California and Nevada's water quality plans. ((sot @ 22:28 Lauri Kemper, Lahontan Regional Water quality Control Board)) "And, we want to hear from the public about what their concerns are about the lake's water quality and what their future vision is for the lake ecosystem." ((track 2)) There will be many opportunities for public participation between now and when the regional plan is finalized in 2007...beginning with a symposium this May where researchers will share the very latest scientific data about the lake. ((sot @ 23:28)) "We'll have the opportunity for the first time to really know what are the sources of pollution going into Lake Tahoe and in what quantities. And we'll also know how much we need to reduce the pollutant loads by." ((sot @ 23:40)) "With that information the public will be able to help us figure out what are some of the best methods to reduce that pollutant load and what are the contributions and reductions they're willing to make." ((track 3)) So if you're interested in being a part of Lake Tahoe's future, now is your chance to get involved. With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I';m Shelly Purdy for KOLO News Channel 8. ((Anchor tag)) We will keep you up to date on all upcoming times and dates of regional plan public meetings.
