This shall involve multiple rotations in fallout areas and continue until remaining debris is minimal or for at least two hours. • The following day, a boat crew will resume surface debris search and cleanup, traveling 50 to 100 feet offshore at slow speeds. Cleanup efforts will continue until the amount of observable debris is minimal or for at least four hours. • A dive crew will start underwater debris search and cleanup the day after the show. Divers will cover the debris field working outward from where the fireworks barges were anchored. • Fireworks sponsor will assemble crews to patrol the Nevada shoreline by foot from Nevada Beach to Marla Bay to remove any fireworks debris. Daily searches will be done for at least five days following a show and continued until no more debris is found. If debris is reported in other areas, cleanup crews will respond. • Fireworks sponsor will set up, publicize and monitor a telephone, email and website hotline for people to report fireworks debris. The hotline will remain in effect for at least three months after a show and the sponsor will respond by the next business day as weather conditions allow. • Fireworks sponsor will prepare a written log for all search and cleanup efforts. A final log will be prepared within 12 days of the end of cleanup efforts and be turned over to the Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and Nevada Department of Environmental Protection.
