TWRA secures a boat dock on the loose

DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. — Concerns arose in Decatur County as some residents said a boat dock broke loose into Beech River.

In a video sent to WBBJ by a Decatur County resident who wanted to remain anonymous, you can see the boat dock with a red roof floating in Beech River.

Decatur County Wildlife Officer Brant Luker said the dock originally broke off in February after flooding.

Recently, the waters are backing up in Beech River and the dock started moving again.

The resident who let us know about the dock said she’s worried the dock could drift off and be a danger to people.

After receiving calls, Luker said the dock has been tied up and secured until further action can be taken on Monday morning.
