Chiawana Island Closed Forever Because We Abused It (AGAIN)
After it was temporarily closed in 2014 due to misuse, the Army Corps of Engineers has decided to permanently close Chiawana Island.
After a lot of waste and garbage was discovered in September of 2014, the island was closed until June of 2015.
Apparently, that wasn't enough to keep the island from becoming a garbage can.
No visitor access will be granted and their will be law enforcement patrols in place.
Hopefully, this doesn't become a trend in the Columbia Basin.
