Today on The Environment Report...  

If you look on your calendar, you 
probably won’t see it marked 
down with a star next to it. The 
EPA has declared this week "Fix a 
Leak Week".  The federal agency says 
the average home wastes 11,000 gallons 
of water a year. Lester talks with 
reporter Tamara Keith about the problem.  

And... in the midst of all the trouble 
in the auto industry there are a few 
small car companies trying to make a 
go of it. Reporter Dustin Dwyer has the 
story of the Tesla Motors. They make an 
electric sport coupe for more than 100 
grand, and now they want to make a more 
affordable four door. Can this little 
company make it in the big world of car 
manufacturing?
