Silver Lake Reservoirs Conservancy leaders attended a public tour of the Echo Park Lake project in August. This is a major renovation of Echo Park, funded by Proposition O Clean Water bonds. Echo Park Lake may help guide the future of the Silver Lake Reservoirs, once they are taken off-line in a few years.
The project includes extensive stormwater management features, including wetlands to help clean stormwater runoff, improved banks to control erosion, and of special interest to the community: restoration of the famed Lotus Garden.
