AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta leaders talk about what steps to take at Lock and Dam.

Commissioners went behind closed doors in a legal session to meet with their Lock and Dam consultant, and attorney December 3rd.

South Carolina has filed suit against the Corps of Engineers’ decision to replace Lock and Dam with a rock weir, and some commissioners are saying that’s an action they want the city to take.

“I think we should join South Carolina in the lawsuit to stop this give us time we need to do something. We need to do something quick. We need to do something positive. It seems in Augusta, every time we have something important we need to move quickly on, it takes forever to get done,” said Commissioner John Clarke.

Commissioners met in legal session for almost three hours Tuesday but still did not announce any new action for Lock and Dam.
