4th at Water St., Looking Northeast (see more)

I know one of my big complaints about St. Patrick's Day festivities has always been that there just aren't enough civic forums included. But that's not the case this year!
* This is late notice (my bad), but on Thursday night (March 17) DC Water (aka WASA) is holding a Ward 6 Town Hall Meeting to talk about all manner of water- and sewer-related issues. Both Tommy Wells and George Hawkins (general manager of DC Water) will be there, and no doubt one of the topics of discussion will be the multi-billion-dollar Clean Rivers Project to fix the combined sewer overflows that result in sewage emptying into the Anacostia River. I have done a wonderful job of avoiding writing about this project, and I will do so for a while longer, except to note that it will eventually mean construction work along M Street east of 9th and along Tingey Street, but not before next spring (and continuing until 2017), so I have a little more time to get with the program. The town hall is from 6:30 to 8 pm at Watkins Elementary, 420 12th St. SE.
* Unfortunately, the DC Water town hall is scheduled at the exact same time as the "First Semi-Annual DC Circulator Public Forum," which is being held right in the neighborhood at the Courtyard by Marriott at New Jersey and L SE, and which is expected to include a discussion of a possible expansion of service on the Union Station-Navy Yard line, perhaps by expanding hours of operation to 9 pm Monday-Saturday during baseball season. (There is, however, no truth to the rumor that the route is going to be renamed the Dubliner-Molly Malone's line.)

JD: lots happening in the neighborhood this AM. A crane seems to be removing the entire Western face of the 1015 Half St building.

There's also interior work with ventilation set-up (asbestos removal?) occurring in the abandoned auto shops just up from the market deli.

And some new paint has appeared on the exterior of Nationals Park above the ticket windows.

To add to the happenings discussion, does anyone know what was going on on New Jersey Avenue last night? There was filming being done with what looked like DC police at the corner of New Jersey and K. It looks like they got shots of police cars turning the corner with their lights on, a crazy looking police motorcycle doing donuts in the intersection, and a couple guys running down the street. A training video maybe? Earlier around 7pm they were setting up at the 295 overpass on New Jersey, too.

Alan - A few weeks ago there were pieces of the facade on the ground on the western side of the building and several were removed/missing from the upper floors - not sure what happened over there. But road is being repaved - finally....

Yes, asbestos per one of the demo guys I talked talked to last month plus they have been cleaning up a fluid spill over the last few days -- leaking oil or some kind leaking into the alley onto K St.

There was a police officer standing in front of Velocity yesterday about 6:30 - just standing there not doing anything - maybe related? There was some movie type filming on the mall on Sunday - realted?

I saw trucks showing up with chain link fence (I assume to put up a construction boundary) at Canal Park around 7am. Not sure if it's up yet...
