TranscriptionSEGMENT 1: ((ANCHOR INTRO)) Tonight we begin a new weekly segment on News channel 8 called the Lake Tahoe Report. Every Tuesday night at five we will bring you news about the latest research, information and work being done at Lake Tahoe to preserve and protect that treasured body of water. It doesn't matter if you live in the Tahoe area or some other part of northern Nevada. The issues we will cover in our Lake Tahoe Report segments do affect you. After all, good water quality and a healthy outdoor environment is something everyone needs. News Channel 8 has teamed up the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition to bring you the Lake Tahoe Report campaign. In tonight's opening segment, Shelly Purdy explains what this joint project is all about. PACKAGE: ((TRACK 1)) When you look at Lake Tahoe it?s easy to see the magnificence of this amazing lake. It?s also easy to overlook the difficult problems these waters face. ((SOT tape 1 @ 7:37 Edmund Gee, Deputy Forest Service Supervisor, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit)) "One of the overriding problems here at Lake Tahoe is the amount of phosphorus and nitrogen that's placed into the lake due to erosion control measures that are not currently in place." ((SOT tape 1 @ 21:50 Carl Hasty, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency)) "So, we?ve got a bunch of nutrients and sediment entering the lake that is changing the system. That causes algae to grow and sediment to cloud the water, and it?s changing the clarity of what we all know and love." ((TRACK 2)) The problems facing Lake Tahoe don't just affect the trees in the forest and the water in the lake. Those problems affect you more than you may realize. Lake Tahoe serves as a main source of drinking water for the Reno/Sparks area. The lake also contributes tourism revenue to both the local communities and to the state?s economy. ((SOT tape 1 @ 22:23 Carl Hasty)) "The lake is really the asset that drives the economy here. This is what people come for, to enjoy it, to see it, to be in it, and to be around it." ((SOT tape 1 @ 20:21 Juan Palma, Executive Director, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency)) "So, from the business side, we?ve got to protect it. This great asset that we have because it?s in fact our competitive edge in the marketplace." ((STANDUP CLOSER, Tape 1 @ 31:30 Shelly Purdy)) ?In the coming weeks we will delve into much greater detail about the issues facing the Lake Tahoe ecosystem and specifically what you can do to help. And, whether you live near here or not, we hope the information we provide will inspire you to think more about the issues we present and possibly take action in your own home or community. I?m Shelly Purdy for News Channel 8.? ((ANCHOR TAG/FULL SCREEN)) As we mentioned earlier, The Lake Tahoe Report campaign is a partnership between News Channel 8 and the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition If you would like more information on this or future segments please visit our website at and click on the Lake Tahoe Report icon. Next Tuesday Shelly will go into greater detail about the Lake Tahoe watershed and explain why the watershed you live in is so important.
