TranscriptionSegment 16 - Air Date: May 20 "Building Season Begins" You are meeting two people from TRPA at "64 Acres" (near Tahoe City) to talk about the beginning of building season. You need to get video of a construction site and the various BMPs in place at 64 acres. BMPs are structures used to control erosion, and in this case they're used to control erosion during construction. Interview whoever wants to be the spokesperson from TRPA: What are temporary BMPs used at construction sites? Why are they necessary? Why is there a set building season at Tahoe, what is it? How important are BMPs during construction when the soil is disturbed? How does this all relate to Lake Tahoe and water clarity? Etc. *Be sure to pick up video from a construction site as well as the stuff at 64 acres (Heather will help with this.) *Also, Tahoe beauty/b-roll is always a good idea. *And, don?t forget to get Mt. Pluto on your way home (Heather can follow you there and point out what you need.)
