Insight: Late Rain and Wildfires / Snow Melt Impacts / Benefits of Water Increase / Kevin Riggs


Late Rain and Wildfires What does the unseasonably late rain and cooler weather mean for Northern California this summer when it comes to fire risk? We talk about this with the Deputy Director of Cal Fire and with a UC Davis professor of geology.
 
Snow Melt Impacts When the Sierra snow finally does melt, what impact will the water have on area rivers and reservoirs which are already running high. How do area officials plan to deal with the water increases? We talk with officials from the Department of Water Resources and the Board of Reclamation.
 
Benefits of More Water The increased water levels in rivers, lakes and reservoirs from the late rain may bring an economic upside, especially in local tourism and water sports. We talk with the Director of Tourism for the non-profit North Lake Tahoe Resort Association.
 
Kevin Riggs Former political reporter Kevin Riggs looks back on 30 years in Sacramento TV News: the highs, the lows, and how news media have transformed in this market during that time.
