Whitewater Rafting cleans up on the river

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Whitewater clean-up on the Chattahoochee River brought out several onlookers on this Columbus Day.

People enjoying time off from work today seemed to be mesmerized by the view from the 14th Street Bridge. They saw a bulldozer removing debris, tree limbs and rocks from below the surface.

Uptown Columbus director Richard Bishop says the cleanup was planned as the peak season for rafting comes to an end. The rapids, however, will remain open year-round.

They also told us they expect about 17,000 customers to participate in whitewater rafting by the end of the month.
