Albany- Workers are putting the finishing touches on the Riverquarium.

It'll open to the public in two and a half weeks.

Tuesday night, members of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce got a closer look at the exhibits, some of them full of fish and other animals. The staff still has some important work to get to before the opening, like a chemical treatment for the water in the Blue Hole.

"We can't dive the Blue Hole, it's not safe until we get rid of that chemical, so we'll be doing last minute preps, actually about four or five days before the opening," said Doug Noble, director of the Riverquarium.

The Riverquarium officially opens Labor Day Weekend. WALB will sponsor a big opening day party Friday September 3rd.
