BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

There's great news for Decatur County residents! The Boat Basin is now open to the public.

Administrators say they received a clearance yesterday from EPD saying there is no longer any sewage in the river. 

Officials say its now safe for people to enter the park, fish, and go boating in the river.

"Some of the local citizens were getting a little anxious to get back in here and we're glad we were able to open that back up to our citizens," said Al Kelley, Recreational Director for Bainbridge.

The Boat ramp and Nature trail are now open to the public. The back entrance is still closed due to construction.
