TranscriptionSegment 66 "Tahoe Research Symposium" Air date: May 11, 2004 Anchor Intro: Hundreds of millions of your tax dollars are being spent at Lake Tahoe each year on research and environmental improvement projects. But how do you or the people doing the research know if that money is being spent wisely? Shelly Purdy takes a look in tonight's Lake Tahoe Report. ((Take Pkg)) ((Track 1)) President Clinton asked for it during the Tahoe Forum…a place where scientists and researchers could work together and share information, collaborate on ideas and hopefully save time and money in the effort to preserve lake Tahoe. That meeting will take place in (next weeks?) second biannual research symposium at the Cal Neva. Researchers, educators, policy makers, and interested members of the public will gather to discuss the most recent data and scientific information about Lake Tahoe. Without this kind of symposium… ((sot @ 11:40 Tim Rowe, Hydrologist)) "There'd be a lot of duplication of efforts from things not being done that should be done, working collaboratively and wasting money and getting everybody on the same page and working together and doing a lot more for less money." ((Track 2)) There will be 55 presentations, 45 posters and 4 field trips designed to give participants a look at the very latest scientific research being done here. Everything from water quality, fire monitoring, revegetation efforts, forest health and wildlife populations will be discussed. ((sot @ 14:14 Carl Hasty, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency)) "The more informed we are with solid information the better decisions can be made whether it's a manager on the land or a policy maker on the board or an executive such as myself and that's what we're really after." ((Track 3)) The information learned at the symposium will then be used to help develop community and regional plans for the Lake Tahoe Basin. With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm Shelly Purdy for KOLO News Channel 8. Anchor tag: The keynote speaker at this year's symposium is a weather historian. He will be discussing historical weather data and patterns at Lake Tahoe. Fore more information on the symposium visit out website at
