What's Needed to Manage Wildfires

"The western united states is under excessive heat warnings or advisories again that he plus the extreme drought that's been afflicting. The region could make for a disastrous wildfire season. This year in states like california last fire season in california was already the worst in the state's modern history with nearly ten thousand fires burning over four million acres killing thirty three people and destroying thousands of properties forest management and california as in most states is a responsibility shared by state and federal authorities. We wondered if they're doing enough to adapt to what seems to be a growing threat from wildfires year after year to help us answer that question. We called scott stevens. He's a professor at the university of california berkeley specializing in wildfires and forest management professor stevens. Welcome happy to be here. So let's start with a big question. Why do fire conditions seem to be getting worse and worse over time in california we have climate change in packing state with higher temperatures. More drought dry fuel. All this contributes to are already vulnerable conditions from fire suppression and past harvesting the other piece which is really difficult is so many people living in the wild at urban interface and this also causes great vulnerability. Quick point of information there. You mentioned the phrase wildland urban interface. Can you tell us what that is. Yes this is the area where we have people. Living in an among the wildland vegetation of californian elsewhere the united states. it's a place where maybe people are living on one egg number five acre. Lots sometimes are actually A subdivision right adjacent to forced or sometimes a shrub win so it really is an environment where you're right next to or within the wildland areas from fire behavior standpoint

Is There a Haunted Lake Near Oregon's Very Own Area 51?

"And what many people call oregon's area fifty one not far from oregon's lincoln city downtown is the six hundred and eighty five acre devil's lake. One hundred years ago. It was called indian bay. That is until it was invaded by an evil spirit. Said that indian warriors attempted to cross late one night when returning from a hunting trip never reached the other side subtler till i'll how tentacles came out of the water wrapped around the indians canoe and pulled them under to this day. Many locals will not approach the lake at night. Although the devils like monster hasn't been seen in a hundred years it said that dust the spirits of the warriors can be viewed at the water's edge searching for their canoes continued travelling north from lincoln city on route eighteen. And you enter the twelve mile van doozer cord or where it said you'll pass by oregon's own area. Fifty one many drivers using a corridor as a commute to lincoln city. Say they often feel like their cars being driven by an unseen force. Some reports seen lights in the sky. Others say they've seen people along the road who disappeared before there is. These are business men and women. This could be attributed to the haunting of a ghost town along the corridor. Just east rose lodge. But perhaps he's reports aren't supernatural to hikers in the woods parallel to the corridor claim to have spotted a military base locals. Report that forested road branching off the twelve mile corridor recently was blocked off and there actually is a government testing facility not far from that section of route eighteen lights in the sky people disappearing an unseen force.

"five acres" Discussed on WBAP 820AM

"Down about a year and a half ago were under construction, and I said it walking And I'm looking at the wall and I'm walking and walking. And I'm used to like a development project where you could walk a wall. You know, 10 acres, five acres, two acres What I can And I realized that's a long time. That's a big walk. Ah, lot of it. A lot of the wall you have is incredibly natural. It's you have the mountains. You have the rivers. You have some very powerful water areas. You have some areas that are virtually impossible to get by. So we didn't need walls everywhere but where we needed them. Because it's been so successful that we've added nearly 300 miles, and that's currently under construction. This was our original wish to get these areas done where it was such trouble. And now we have it. It's either in construction or preconstruction, an additional 300 miles. In every region that we've built the wall, illegal crossings and drug smuggling have plummeted absolutely plummeted. In the Rio Grande Valley crossings have dropped nearly 80% in Yuma, Arizona. Illegal entries have been slashed by 90% nationwide ice and Border Patrol of Seized over £2 million of fentanyl, heroin, meth and other Deadly narcotics, saving thousands and thousands of lives. We've arrested nearly 500,000 illegal aliens with criminal records, some with very serious criminal records of the type you don't want to know about, like murder. We removed nearly 20,000 gang members from the United States, including 4500 members of M s 13, probably The worst gang of them all. Through the landmark reforms we've put into place we have ended the immigration chaos and re established American sovereignty. Most important reform was ending, catch and release. Not easy to do you dealing with Congress? It's very, very difficult. Which is the functional equivalent of open borders. But even worse, it's catch and release them. It means release into our country, not into another country. This policy was exploited by vicious criminal organizations.

"five acres" Discussed on NewsRadio WIOD

"School way, and then you've got maybe who's the homeowner might have an acre of five acres. They may have purchased a small tractor with a bucket so they could take a small tree. Put it into the bucket, take their hole and put it in. And then as you get up from there now you get into more of the people like Cutter's edge. The landscape professionals who do this for a living. They know exactly what needs to get done. As we spoke about before about how to plant a tree. Where to plant a tree. What kind of treat a plant. Now they've got the machinery. Tio plant these things so And in case I think there's a couple things really important, too, that when we're looking at whether it's cutters edge or it's any contracting company that you're going to hire to put thes these trees and No. They have qualified personnel that they're going to come onto your property, You know? Are they finally actually strong, Teo and have the start up cost some of these trees that they may purchase can go into the 4 $15,000 range that they've got to buy this tree up front. Do they have the money to do that to finish there and complete the jobs, you know, And then the other thing is, you know they have a safety record. If they're going to be coming onto your property with some of this heavy equipment, you know, you want to make sure they're not going to damage the homes. Damage the property, bring to every piece of equipment onto your concrete driveway and crack it. Things like that. So I think that's really important When we talk about this heavy equipment stuff that whoever you are hiring to do this kind of work, they are qualified and do have the qualified equipment to be able to handle that project. And and and the last thing is, boy, They're bringing us heavy equipment on your property. Make sure you get additionally insured on their policy s so that way, you know they're insured to do this kind of work and and and their license to do this kind of work, you know, don't hire. Ah. No higher your concrete guy. Teo do the route printing of the tree because when that inspector comes, it's not Rupert properly. He could fail the inspection on you. The concrete could be perfect. At the Rupert needed was improper, and now you gotta replace trees and stuff. So those are things that take in mind Casey when we're talking about his heavy equipment stuff when we talk about equipment, and we talk about heavy equipment. What are examples of some of the types of machinery Casey well, the most common to.

Nuns agree to turn former convent into flood-prevention project

"When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in two thousand, five the Convent of the Sisters of Saint. With severely damaged by flooding. The nuns moved elsewhere while repairs began. The following year lightning struck the roof and started a fire. The convent could not be saved. We began to pray for some kind of insight that would enable us to use the property in a way that would minister to the people of New Orleans sister Pat Bergen architect came to the nuns with an idea converting the twenty five acres into a wetland that helps prevent flooding in nearby areas they're calling the project. The mirabeau water garden plans for the site include recreational areas, meadows that absorb storm water and retention ponds. When the city's drainage system is overwhelmed, water will be diverted to the property and held there until it can be safely released. Healing, strengthening restoring earth was a major part of our decision making and that's why this design resonated with our hearts right away. So, when the city breaks ground, it will turn what was once a major loss into a gain for the flood prone city of New

Ecology Lessons from Mt. Auburn Cemetery

"Tell us about when Mount Auburn sort of formalized the idea of emphasizing places in urban wildlife refuge and set specific sustainability goals like what's that? When did that happen? Well. I would I would say even before I was here, there was certainly a focus on a at some degree of sustainability sustainable practices, but it wasn't. It really started ramping up and you know after I got here because of my own interests, many of the other staff at the time as well and we really felt it was time to do more focus spend more time focusing on and really do the right thing and. It gradually became more formalized Because I'm sorry term planning processes and and when are several years ago we did a strategic plan and one of the top level and strategic initiatives of the plan was to be a model of environmental stewardship. So it really that's when it really became Kinda Corp Institution wide. Horticulture Department. Because of in the. Area I. Mean you're this piece of ecological uniqueness I think I read and one description right? I mean it's it's an unusual place to have one hundred and seventy five acres. In the conditioner. Really. It's it's such an important more and more important these days because we're in surrounded by an urban environment and. Green Open greenspace. That's good for my life and people is that much more important than it used to be and recognized as being important so it's Yeah. We're really in a kind of a unique spot. So. Now as with Central Park in New York City and other such spaces like the birds for instance, and you have a lot of birds they are especially during migration periods at Mount Auburn. Birds knew all along. This was a great ecologically important spot. So tell us a little bit about the wildlife and who calls home and so forth. The I? Say forever third says. Stop Vice About Auburn but. On on the fly over the path of migrating birds, you know come and kind of fun you following the coastline. from Central America and up on up north. So we're right in that in that flyway in in recent years more, the more urbanization has happened the more. Here. We are at the birds fly over and all they say is one hundred, seventy, five acres of five thousand trees in the tree tops is fine over. So it really is an obvious place for them to. Stop and take arrest them get replenished with. Food on their way north we happen to be in you know in in an area zone that birds are migrating through anyway, and of course, there's also a lot of resident birds as well that. Take Up. Space, here. And I imagine that you have bird clubs and stuff worth that left to be there and looking at birds. Yes absolutely that's where we are quite popular destination for many. Many very clubs and Amasau of on society and other. Organizations that that that organized groups to bring here and then just as people. Flock here from as individuals especially in May and peak migrating season, but also throughout the year. So it's not just birds I know for instance, when you did your woodland, you did you've done a number of as part of the sort of overall Mandate of of greater stability and and being more of a wildlife refuge in in recent years that's intensified you've done a number of projects you restored with didn't chew I mean or your receive in restoring the woodland. Tell us a little bit of some of the sort of steps and what did you do? Did you kind of monitor populations and figure out who is there and what you needed to do to what's thought process that when you when you begin an and again, this is a historic place and a place that a lot of people have. attachment to. You know it's an emotional place. It's a treasured place so you can't just change everything right? You have limitation. Right. Glad. You mentioned that we still are very much a an active ongoing cemetery. Belt creating and selling in bear space and burying people all the time in addition to you know generations of people that have already been buried here. So yeah. So we have to keep that in mind while we continue to move forward

I built my house when I was twenty five. On my own business for few years at this point, and just you still live in it. Oh absolutely yeah, so my wife and I had bought twenty five acres angrier, still dating. We've been together. Seventeen. And you know there's always. What had happened was Yom Irish, so I got in a fight with our landlord on a Thursday night, and I was digging footings for New House on Friday morning. Not GonNa stay there anymore. We decided that we would just build up. A Small House on property on Shop Foundation, so I build a thirty by thirty four. The original tiny house. And then somewhere else on the property at Sunday we build our dream house and you know. Turn this into a shop. which is you know I was going to have a heated shot foundation? You mean a slab on grade or a? It's got four foot walls under a, but it is, it's it's a slab inside a four foot walls so i. mean it's it's. It's not. It's above or below frost line, but it's you know I. I didn't know you should insulate slabs back then, and I didn't know. Can Lights were all the rage back in two thousand? Twenty or thirty of those in the house, and where we're going to put the the Ductwork Oh, let's just throw it up in the attic and we don't need insulated duct work as we're GONNA cover insulation. there. I I have fixed what I can fix long. You know I mean we didn't use the. Vent vents and through the roof, and so I I six when I can sex along the way You know the other stuff you just learn to live with you know the fans dump outside now and you know we've done smears the only enough there and we've got appropriate levels of insulation and being on a slab. It's naturally a pretty tight house. Anyway signed my blower doors. Maybe twelve hundred or something, and we've added onto it since as there's you know, it's now sixteen forty square feet, you know. We had three kids in it and. As, just say long live there and then boy. We're having kids faster than we're getting towards dream house you know. It's it's it's terrific house at. Its.

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, Women Working in the World of Plants

"We continue cultivating places. Women's history month interviews. Were joined this week by Andrea Delong Amaya director of horticulture for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas. At Austin it is also the botanic garden for the State of Texas Andrea has been on staff for over twenty years and has more than thirty years of experience in horticulture. She Guides fifteen staff members in the design and management of nine acres of Native Plant Gardens. Two hundred and seventy five acres of natural areas and in native plant nursery. She teaches classes in native plant horticulture and writes and presents on her passion for the field widely. She spoke with US late. Last autumn to share more about the history and work of the centre including it. Being the legacy of another extraordinary woman ladybird Johnson Andrea shares. Her own enthusiasm for this field of work. Welcome Andrea Hi. How you doing? I'm great how are you wonderful? I'd love for you to start by describing describe the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as visually as you can for listeners. Who may not have been there. And then we'll talk a little bit about your specific work there Andrea Sherr so we are in a South Austin and in the middle of Texas. We're in a part of the state that we refer to as Texas El country or the Edwards Plateau which is a beautiful beautiful part of the state. Of course Texans will say every part of the state is beautiful but I WANNA say text. The central Texas area is particularly beautiful especially in the spring were really renowned for having excellent wildflower displays including the Texas blue on it which occurs all over the state but the central Texas areas particularly flora for us in the spring. And so we are like I said in Austin and the site that were on is a public garden where about two hundred and eighty five acres. I think we actually added a little bit more In the last year or so and it's a public garden where we feature plants that are native to the state of Texas. That's the site now. The organization is bigger than that But the gardens here. We're demonstrating hell different. Native plants can be used in different kinds of landscapes different kinds of styles. We have collections of plants. From different parts of the State we are the Botanic Garden Texas. So we're trying to increase our collections to represent other parts of the state as well as the central Texas area so we have about nine acres of cultivated gardens and then we have a sixteen Acre Texas Arboretum of trees So those are the horticultural areas in then. We have natural areas in The other parts of the the property And that the natural areas also include some research areas. We have some Areas where we're doing Land Management prescribed fire treatments and different kinds of land-management to see how that influences the vegetation. Yeah we can talk more about that. If you're if you like definitely definitely I will i. I would love to get into some of the specifics of each of those areas you just described but before we get there. Describe your your your job there what it entails and may be the trajectory of your twenty years there. Andrea. Yeah well. I started as a gardener appropriately and really enjoy working outside. I mean I've always been interested in being outdoors and that goes way back to my childhood is probably most people who have an affinity for the natural world That usually starts childhood so I grew up doing things outdoors with my parents particularly with my dad. We'd go camping or canoeing. And I remember having a field guide of of wildflowers weeds that surrounded our area where we lived and that was great. Fun everything from astronomy to birds and lizards and insects. Just everything is so interesting And I just find that the more I learn about things the more I'm fascinated and in awe of the natural world so that's just started early but it's just been a long a lifelong interest in learning more and observing more. I mean I laugh. We have a big picture window at our dining room table. And that's our TV. We don't have an actual electronics of the Inter House. It's overlooking a garden and pond and we just sit there and watch the animal antics and what's blooming and it's great fun and it's a nice way to slow down in our fast paced world That's a that's a big part of what I think. Nature does for me and for a lot of people So you started as a gardener. What year was that Andrea and then tell us about the progression of your rules at the Center Which clearly you progressed in because of your deepening curiosity and ever expanding knowledge base. Yes so I started in December of nine hundred ninety eight and Worked as a gardener I've guarded in most of the areas that we have in Under cultivation over the years and at some point we had Position of gardens manager was available so I moved into that and then I don't know maybe fifteen years ago I transitioned into the direct report culture and Unfortunately that means a little bit less guarding than I used to do. But it also gets me in a higher level of designing decision making which is very exciting and allows me to have more influence over some of the bigger picture things that are happening And then overseeing the natural areas arboretum and the nurseries also been pretty pretty fun and adds different interest to what what I'm looking at. Yeah so talk about Before we get into the specifics of some of the programmatic areas and display areas there and then the research give listeners. A history of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center when it started what it's original mission in scope was of course the wonderful woman for whom it is named and by whom it was founded in its original iteration and So that that people have an understanding of just how much bigger is then. A Garden appreciating wildflowers. Because that is a fabulous mission but it's it is much bigger than that so we're very blessed to have had the visionary Labor Johnson as founder. She founded the wildflower center. Initially as the wildflower research center. The National Welfare Research Center and that was an endeavor that she took on with her friend and actress. Helen Hayes which a lot of people don't remember that part of of the history but it's Kinda Funny Mrs Johnson didn't feel like she had enough name. Recognition Systems of Helen Hayes. And so her mission right from the beginning was to really try to understand an unlocked the secrets of wildfires in native plants and understand how they grow and that was the original research. The the wildflower center did at that time and so that was a nineteen eighty two so the organization started back. Then we moved to our current site as a public garden Before it was more just a research site with some portables but it didn't really have botanical garden kind of exhibits. Someone moved to Our current site in one thousand nine hundred ninety five that was really a big focus of making the space Amenable to guests and having exhibits that people can interact with and having educational programming and really elaborating on that when she first started it. Why we'll just remind listeners? She was of course the first lady of the United States and she Had A as firstly. She had some remarkable initiatives to beautify.

"They went good went good let's see here when I had to album and let's talk with James how are you today after that server self doing wonderful looking at porn a slab out now and so much only that the old buildings are the way to go features soft boiling over is that a waste of money that hocus pocus Sir well unless you get a source report done in your to find out exactly how deep you need to go with them it would be a waste of money but he any time somebody is building a new slab I recommend doing the souls report because that's going to tell you do you need peers how deep do they need to be what type of foundation would be best suited on it being that the whole nine yards they dig it literally lays everything out the way that foundation should be built Auburn but how much of the full report post all may be you're probably looking at something in the neighborhood of fifteen hundred and they gave me the exact location of the house is being exactly along but yet yeah I don't know pretty much an approximation within five acres and now that's two biggest ma'am okay so what we would live in about a one acre block somewhere I personally I'd wait till I got down to almost like a residential lot size okay all right rule of thumb like when they go in and do it a big neighborhood even when you're doing in a big neighborhood they've got to do so many test borings of you know for the acreage and if I cash I think the last time I checked on it was something like for every three acres they do a test or so you know if they're going to do an a a hundred and eighty acre neighborhood every three acres there's a test for okay all right now will prevent any foundation cracking issues or any of that no but he sure narrows it down to word yes and a heck of a lot better shot at it yeah it'll it'll let me know and let me be serious with you for a second a lot of people get really concerned about foundation cracks it's not foundation cracked I can guarantee you you will find a crack in the foundation the steel is in it to hold it together but what this is going to help eliminate is the dist the flexion a lot of level of the foundation okay that's that's what gets expensive right I did hear you got about the west all the time and I figured y'all would be in business if there weren't a lot stay they still building today to keep us in business twenty years from now so we like it and here's the things they do that keep us in business yeah that's also also just talking about begin to for part it really needs to be down to do it within a couple walks the next thing is trees are planted way too close to the foundation if the right if the trunk or not the trial if the canopy of the tree is get anywheres near the house the roots are going under it you're gonna have movement and if those two items alone would eliminate probably over half the foundation repair that's done beyond that now we're getting into workmanship were plumbing deteriorates and breaks things like that okay and who do you recommend soil sample I give died she geo test the call your turn yeah all right thank you very much back that probably have a phone number for if you want I don't care what you pull it up here real quick connect that one that's when I actually think cabin in my telephone I said your taste geo tech yeah and seven one three seven one three six nine nine six nine nine four thousand four thousand yeah all right I do appreciate Sir you bet take care and again our number seven one three two one two five eight seven four four eight six six nine three seven zero zero zero three gunbarrel let's head out there Keith how are you today hello Hey how are you today I'm doing terrific thank you got it what question I've got a granite tile floor and do the foundation issue forgot a couple cracks or one across the length of the trial I do not want have to tear up the entire trial but I sure would likely would Florida and I I would floor on top of the trial is this a smooth Tyler one it's got a wave to it yeah a little section two out okay and I'm assuming you want to put down a floating would yeah is that tile staying attached good is not power and rustling where no I had to replace a couple of tiles and there's no they're glued right to the foundation there smack right HM that would help get those up yep okay but they're not they're not popping up you can go over it it's going to increase the height obviously of of your floor so at any place you know where you're coming into another room that doesn't have the new floor it is going to have quite a high variants at this point but I if it is a smooth floor doesn't have you know a wavy texture on the tile itself you'll end up just put in a map down yeah that young underneath a

Rachel Hanbury explains Animal Manure is very usable has a lot of energy in it. In twenty seventeen the zoo became the first in the country to convert animal waste to clean energy. The animal manure along with food waste goes into what's called a bio digest her as a waste breaks down in this airtight environment. It releases methane rich gas which can then be used to generate. Electricity Zoo is using that electricity to help power. Its Animal Hospital. The leftover solid waste can be used as compost for gardens throughout the zoo. And we're one hundred and twenty five acres in size so we use a lot of compost. Hamburgers says by putting animal and food ways to good. Use The zoo is diverting about five hundred under tons of waste from landfills each year though bio digesters are fairly common on farms. Only a handful of zoos around the world have started using them but hamburger says that's changing. Zoos are reaching out to us all across the country because they want to do something similar. It's part of a growing trend of keeping waste from going to waste.

The case for growing lettuce in New England

"Most of the lettuce eaten in the United States. Comes I'm from California and Arizona. Regions expected to see more drought as the climate warms from. There it's all around the country generating carbon pollution with every three mile. But some say there's a better way if we all want to enjoy fresh produce that we need to grow it in many different spots regionally rather than just one part of the country. Matthew Meisel is chief financial officer of literally farms we decided let's grow lettuce year. Round in New England and the company grows more than two million pounds a year in a five Acre greenhouse in Massachusetts Meisel says the greenhouses not only closer to east coast consumers. Its location also allows the company to take advantage of the region's ample rainfall. We don't have a water shortage. In New England. We have abundant natural water. We capture rainwater. Ruben we store it and that's all the water that we use on our crop and they'll farming through a cold. Winter requires heating and lighting greenhouse in house shifting to renewables can reduce dependence on fossil fuels. So meisel says the time is right to rethink. How and where vegetables are

"Know for sure when it rains you stay out of the ocean the winter rains are great for helping and fire season and building up drinking water supplies it's all good but here in greater LA a big storm also means millions of gallons of stormwater draining straight out on to the beaches and into the ocean and that storm water carries with it a lot of filth and garbage on the streets and in the drains bacteria oil grease chemicals of all kinds just a bunch of debris and garbage all goes into the ocean watershed management groups are supposed to capture and clean that storm water but a new report by the environmental nonprofit he'll today finds that they're only treating a small fraction of the water that they're supposed to analysts imho is water quality scientists and heal the bay the author of the report and Lisa thanks for being here yes thank you for having me I want to talk more about the how storm water is actually captured in treated so how does how does this process work so there's many different ways that you can capture storm water but the the general idea is that you put in a project that is able to retain storm water in some way so either allowing it to infiltrate naturally or capturing it in an underground cistern or something like that putting it through the treatment process two guys came out the trash and potentially also take out some of the other are harder contaminants like add copper or zinc bacteria things that are invisible to the naked eye and then I they're releasing it back into the water ways or re using it on site you can use it to you at your gate lands are you can replenish our ground water reservoirs with that water as well says many different ways that you did not it's not potable right but it is you can use it for the other stuff yes and once it's treated and then once it infiltrates through the ground it does get cleaned up enough to replenish our ground water and then that is a safe source of water not quite a brit a filter right process I want to talk about the results in your report watershed management groups are responsible for capturing as you mentioned in treating this the storm water there are a dozen of those groups give us a quick snapshot of what you found and how they're doing so what we found so far is that we are not on track to reach goals each of these watershed management groups has a different deadline to reach these goals because they are based on that as federally mandated water quality objectives and days are EPA standard EPA standards yes and so some of these deadlines are right around the corner the coming up in twenty twenty one other groups have a little bit longer they have until twenty thirty seven I think is the latest deadline none of the deadlines have officially passed yet but we should be working towards them and I at this point we don't see the type of implementation that we need to be seeing to reach those goals on time but how are they doing like as far as as far as capturing this the stuff yes so our assessment is based on information that was in the annual report which is available to any member of the public and what we found is that at collectively were about ten percent of the way there and again because some of these deadlines or in twenty twenty one right around the corner we do need to be implementing a little bit faster than that when I'm walking down the street and I see the storm drain and it says go straight to the ocean you know what I'm talking about the little the little sign absolutely right is that true yeah right there it does go straight to the ocean so in Los Angeles we actually have a separate storm sewer system and that is separate from our waste water sewage system other parts of the country have a combined sewer system as images go as an example has a combined sewer system and actually causes some problems sometimes because when you have a very large storm it can overflow their sewage system and cause sewage spills so we don't have that problem here which is actually a pretty good thing but the problem is that while the waste water is sent to treatment facilities and is treated before it is discharged the stork storm water goes directly into storm drains which lead to the Los Angeles river or by in a creek which leads directly to the ocean you mention my on a creek I want to talk about this this this group called the bionic creek watershed management group your report found that that this management group captures a just under seventy five acre feet of storm water for treatment but the intended target is more than two thousand two thousand acre feet within just the next year or so year and a half is that typical of how far behind these watershed management groups are from what we found in the annual report said is pretty typical that part of the reason for that is that at the management groups did have to come up with a plan first before they started implementing and so there was a little bit of delay and that implementation and now that we have plans in place we have measured DeFeo and we have a potentially a strong MS four permit in twenty twenty we're really expecting to see that implementation ramp up in the next five to ten years so do you take two thousand and then subtract seventy five from it and then that's how much storm water makes it into the ocean along the beaches roughly ask I want to talk about a big change it's about to arrive on the scene this is measured W. the safe clean water program LA county voters passed last year it goes into effect in twenty twenty it's projected to provide millions of dollars three hundred million I think a year at least some of that money will go toward the capture and treatment of storm water is that a game changer you think going forward in in in fixing this issue absolutely I think we have a really great opportunity and twenty twenty two you change the way that we've been perching this Parramatta and measure W. is going to be a huge part of that it will be roughly three hundred million dollars per year which is actually going to double the amount spent by permit T. is on I stormwater capture projects so it definitely is going to be a game changer and these are projects that are specifically targeting capturing cleaning and reusing storm water this is as I mentioned the first time that you guys have really looked at this is studied in and reported on storm water with with this new money you gonna do this every year we're hoping to yeah and actually part of our report is pointing out the fact that the data is very complicated to it to dig through and so this is our first attempt at doing an assessment of how we are managing our water in Los Angeles county but we certainly want to continue to work with a T. is to update this every year to really show how much progress is being done on a yearly basis analysts Amado water quality scientists and heal the bay you can read a report by the way it heal the bay dot O. R. G. anally so thank you thank you well from the vast Pacific Ocean to a concrete water basin in the now Tony neighborhood of Silver Lake used to serve as a reservoir for drinking water now the Silver Lake reservoir functions as a damn with the running trail around in a lawn and a dog park but there are bigger plans apparently in store the reservoir may be turned into a destination with far more amenities for runners and kids even nature lovers but not everyone's happy about it Francis Anderson host KCRW's design and architecture she's been following this debate hello Francis LST hawk a little bit about this why is still really considering plans to change I guess update the the reservoir now because people love to hang out around there yes despite the chain link fence that surrounds the arrival vast area which is somewhat off putting but yes as you mentioned you can joke that there was a long as a dog park folks in the neighborhood all those things added over the years but what's going on now is since the reservoir was drained five years ago there's been much debate about the west walls future and right now it is in the midst of a design process the city enlisted as landscape design of a well known phone called Hargreaves associates and they have been involved in a very extensive public out which process now those can be really great but they can also surface let's just say different perspectives on what people might desire in that neighborhood that they've had a lot of public meetings they wound up a presenting three different design options there was a survey it was responded to by almost three thousand people as very strong feelings about what to do with the reservoir and let's just say there's been some device over what amount of change to bring to the west of well you said that there were three different plans three ideas right talk us talk us through this that's right in that cold option a island overlooks option be active edges options see blended spaces essentially option a kind of does the least it sort of what Haynes the concrete ball tub provides some overlooks on the water but doesn't change too much the second one option B. is much more active recreational space the suggestions of of boating swimming and the creation of more wildlife habitats a whole combination of of amenities educational areas for learning about climate change so a lot to a lot and not plan then that's cool then this option see which would blend elements of both option a and B. also early the majority of those almost three thousand people let the responded to the survey this one to the combination of option a and B. they wanted greater access and amenities they want to quit beautification they wanted greater protection of existing wildlife with mole and not with more wildlife habitats in it integrated into in into the scheme one and if the if they want to see something you know change in in in a in a water feature they just need go like what a mile down the road to echo park lake right interesting that you bring up echo park lake which I think many would consider is a great success I mean it's gorgeous echo park lake it wasn't always that way correct and it's had a big makeover and the rest of Wall may be going down that poll some really becoming a mole view colleague sort of past stool feeling an attractive place to be what appears to have transpired in Silver Lake is that they're all folks there who actually of slightly worried that the west wall would become too much like two attractive like echo park and that that has been pushed back from those who would bother to see not much done a tool to the west of why they argue that this this is because they want to that very concern for wildlife and they don't want to see too much sort of human impact on the park and they also don't want to see much commercial impact on the park weapons at this is represented most loudly by a group called the Silverlake wildlife sanctuary what one hears from opponents of that group is those concerns about wildlife and preservation of really mall skating a mole sort of in CDS nimby Essam a desire to sort of keep people out to keep access to poking around the edge so this has created some let's just say tensions in the neighborhood then there's lots of people who live in the neighborhood who responded to the survey who don't have a vested interest in any particular one of the options but I was really kind of excited that something's actually coming to the west of one one of those people as Alison gash she actually has self works in environmental planning and policy she lives in selections not attached to any group and this is what she had to say at the end of the day they're going to be adding shade and improving the dog park and creating new access to the waterfront another all fantastic things.

F5: More Than I Expected Was Possible

"Here it is another farm five on farm small farm smart. We have made twelve grand. We were doing a c._s. C._s._a. Of of thirty members and <hes> we just pulled it off. We succeeded to deliver each basket and the quality was good enough and people were excited enough to sign sign up for the next year and we had just enough uh cash to go to cuba and visit farms there so that i hear you know we had a little bit of unsaved up so we had paid for most of our tools and like that but that twelve grand with enough to sustain us for a year go traveling and started to next year and and so i don't i don't know how we how we pulled that off because i don't know as as you grow more into times sometimes i perhaps because i have more expensive taste for wine now but i don't know how far i could go with twelve grand and a kid can go traveling. Did you ever think it would be possible little too gross one hundred and fifty thousand dollars on an acre and a half when you were starting out no no no we can we can foresee that and and you know life because all about steps sometimes you need to take a step to have a view of what with abban above and beyond where you were and that one hundred thousand dollars nature only became reality when we bought the farm and it had a it was a you know it's three acre prairie in the middle of which had the radical and even there when we bought that we had hadn't in had those numbers in my we just saw how big it was and we were thinking wow if all of this is farmed like we're doing now imagine the work that would be and it was to acquire that piece of land. We have to do a business plan and i don't. I don't even think that in the business scenario we had a hundred thousand dollars in there. It was in our fourth year the farm so that was our sixty or farming that we broke the hundred thousand dollar <hes> mark and then i entered a contest <hes> inch hearing quebec and we want and that gave us national recognition and it was just it was it was it was crazy ridiculous because there we were you know winning a contest for economic performances of farms and hoover farming an acre and a half and we push that limit even further out now but definitely when we started. We didn't know that i was even achievable in that fourth year. When you started seeing revenues come in in the general trend in you went on to break that hundred thousand dollar number where you just like holy yeah yeah exactly and then fill sell today you know if it's quite remarkable that that we can make who salary from such a small piece of land when you think about it and there's been a lot of studies now that has been condone about revenues and acreage in canada farm that farms that men in husband and both of them derive their income from the farm. It's about five or six percents of the farm usually on most farms. There's one of the two uh of work outside of the and there we are in that five percent and we're farming you know less than two acres and you know that's been that's been my motivation to talk to to talk about what i do and wha wrote the book and to try and explain and it's because it were farming such a small land base that we're generating such an interesting revenue and and the whole philosophy of trying to to intensify production streamline things because you have land constraint a lot of people still don't believe that it's a good idea not to have a tractor and not farm three or five acres.

Walk down the path and you'll see the most unbelievable sight, though, someone had taken a best full of death and cost them across the mountainside.

That is learning to move towards our goals and desires one step at a time often in just one baby step at a time and learning to love the doing and learn to use the accumulation of time when we multiply tiny pieces of time with small increments of daily effort. We can change the world. Why did this principle have such as -nificant impact on me? It is that reminder that if we do what needs to be done each day. No matter how small step is. We will make progress towards Arkell when it comes to taking ideas and turning them into. The impact from accumulating effort. No matter how small can be the difference between try and success.
