    I heard yesterday that the lock was not working and would not be working until mid-June. I was planning a float trip from Scarborough's Landing to Charleston Mem. Day Weekend, but if that's the case I guess I won't be making that trip. Is there a phone number I can call?

    Last I heard they were going to replace the doors cause they were messed up and it was going to take a while. I do know that they are down and not operational but I dont know a # to call but I am sure someone does.
