Dougherty County - Demolishing the Radium Springs Casino shouldn't damage the springs or the land below the site, according to a geographical study. Geosciences, an Albany company that studies land topography, researched how the demolition might adversely effect the land. They found that tearing down the historic site shouldn't cause any problems.

"The study shows that the vibrations from the demolition equipment are not that much stronger than the current vibrations caused by truck traffic on Radium Springs Road," said Elizabeth Dean, Planning & Development. "We feel sure that the demolition won't cause any problems to the land."

The city of Albany will start salvaging historic parts of the casino on August 1st, and demolition is set to begin September 22nd.
