Commissioners to hear details of Savannah River study


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta Commissioners will finally get the results of that Savannah River activities study.

The $40 thousand dollar study focuses on recreational opportunities.

It was part of the city’s official comments to the Corp of Engineers to save the Lock and Dam.

Some commissioners say they should have heard from the consultants before now. 

“I know there was an option of his that was presented at our official comments, one of the questions that I have is why are we just now hearing about this? I would have liked to have at least had a presentation or a conversation with him before that was part of our comments,” says Commissioner Brandon Garrett.

The recreation study proposes a 2000 foot whitewater course at Lock and Dam with zip lines, disc golf and camping.
