Augusta Canal Officials announce changes, new projects - WFXG Fox54 Augusta-Your News One Hour Earlier
The Augusta Canal Discovery Center will be the new name for the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area's visitor center at Enterprise Mill, canal officials announced today. Canal officials unveiled the Discovery Center's name on a new sign, the first of many that will be installed along the length of the canal as part of a comprehensive signage program, Sherrouse said. When fully implemented, the program will include approximately 100 directional, identity, regulatory and interpretive signs.

Sherrouse also discussed several other current and upcoming canal projects. Work is progressing on bridges across the King and Sibley mills' tailraces to create the River Levee Trail. Groundbreaking for new trailheads at Lake Olmstead and at water pump station at Riverlook Drive will take place within the next few months, he said.

A Confederate Powder Works history interpretive plaza is in the works. Six large descriptive panels, lighting and landscaping are planned for the area at the base of the Civil War-era chimney in front of Sibley Mill. Sherrouse noted planning for the plaza has been underway for about 18 months. Dawson and Associates designed the interpretive panels; the plaza master plan design was prepared pro-bono by Woodhurst Associates Architect, whose principal architect, Robert S. Woodhurst III, serves on the Canal Authority. Installation begins this summer.

Sherrouse briefly mentioned a study to determine if brown trout can survive in the canal being conducted by high school science students from Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. If their data reveal trout can survive, the Authority will work with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to stock a trout fishery in the canal.
