Babbitt To Help Explore Depths Of Lake Tahoe

--so that we can accurately predict what work will be most effective in restoring clarity to the lake. These issues are very complex. But this project is an important part of our fulfillment of the President's and Vice President's commitment to protect this magical place, a place Twain called 'the fairest sight the whole earth affords.'"

Last July, President Clinton and Vice President Gore held a Presidential Forum at Lake Tahoe to galvanize federal help to restore the Tahoe watershed, emphasizing close coordination with state and local efforts. Hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funds have been committed to restoration of the Tahoe watershed, including $20 million in FY 1998 and $27 million in FY 1999.

There are many local legends surrounding the depth and content of Lake Tahoe. Myths as to the depth range from thousands of feet to bottomless, although previous work estimates the deepest part of the lake at about 1600 feet. Reported contents include sunken ships and aircraft.

Babbitt will board the USGS ship on Wednesday, Aug. 12, 1998 at 9:00 a.m. at the Tahoe City Marina at the Boatworks in Tahoe City, Calif. Press will be allowed to board the research vessel between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Due to limited space, only one or two media representatives will be on the research vessel with the Secretary. However, an additional press boat will be provided for accredited media. After the vessels return at approximately 10 a.m., Babbitt will meet with media individually to discuss the Tahoe restoration effort.
