BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The last public input meeting for the University Lakes Restoration Project was held Tuesday night.

Big maps were on display at LSU's Lod Cook Alumni Center. Ideas from prior meetings were already showing in the drawings from designers.

The lake will be deepened from its current two feet to six feet, allowing for something more than a kayak or paddleboard.

"Tonight consultants are here sharing with the public their findings," said John Spain, Executive Vice President of Baton Rouge Area Foundation. "We're gonna listen to the public and hopefully get some feedback, It's the last opportunity they have to tell us what they want."

The lime green areas on the map is where soil from dredging the lakes will be used to restore erosion, build new areas for parks and other things.

A final report is expected sometime in July.
