8:10 am
they've done over the past 20 years, but what they can do in the future to protect the lake. as we've all heard, the water clarity at lake tahoe a key concern. back in the day, 100 years ago, you could zoo see more -- could see more than 100 feet down. now you can see 64 feet. nowadays it's more like 73 feet. they have seen improvement in the water clarity, but with the work they've done to keep run- off, air pollution down, they say it contributes to an unhealthy state. much more needs to be done. they need money. climate change is having an impact on the water's temperature. >> the biggest influence is that we had know that year, 5% of the rainfall, 5% of the precipitation came as snow. so we had rain run-off as posed to snow melt. it's a lot warmer and it floats across the surface carrying contaminants and that's what
8:11 am
obscured our measurement of clarity. >> reporter: president obama is the 2nd president to attend this summit since it started. president clinton attended the first one in 1997. i was this and three years after that summit, the president then signed what became the lake tahoe restoration act which has set aside it's billion for restoration projects around the lake. that has expired. the most recent version stalled out in congress since 2009. they are hoping with the visit today that would give momentum to that act that has stalled out and will bring more funding to protect this, beautiful lake tahoe. back to you guys. this morning, a double homicide sunday investigation. in minutes, oakland police say two bodies were found overnight and the question they have this morning. and there's a program launched by bather this week -- bart this week to incentivize passengers. will it work?

8:17 am
more cars. >> reporter: what are some of the cash insent sentives? for every is,000 points you earn, that equals $1 or you can play a spin to win game. you need to be 18 years old. you need to have a clipper card and a paypal account. bart says reward balances are transferred into that paypal account. bart analyzes that if 1200 people got to work earlier or later, it would be the equivalent of freeing up a ten- car train. again, this is a pilot program that's scheduled to last until february of next year. we'll have to see whether this program really can work. back to you. >> thank you. and speaking of the commute, let's bring in sal. how are the roads? >> they're okay, mike. in fact, we do see traffic getting a little a little better. but a lot of people are trying to avoid the crowds of the roads. we're going to saturday at 24 lafayette. you can see traffic has been
