Decision on lake-drain project?

Several months ago, it seemed that everyone who had ever heard of water was applying for the contract to clean up Echo Park Lake -- and spend the $90+ million available for the project through Prop O. In the last couple of weeks I've heard from a variety of people that the firm Black & Veatch has been seen digging in the dirt around the lake. When we say digging, we mean with a drilling rig (which I myself did not see), not spoons. Some sort of pre-design study? I don't know. Maybe they were just looking for China.

I have heard there's a City Hall meeting today, Jan 30, to discuss the project. It's a public meeting, though there was no public notice I know of.
