The Walla Walla District of the United States Army Corp of Engineers opened Granite Point, also known as the cliffs, following cleaning last week.

The Corps decided to close the area on May 2 after heavy partying on April 27 left hundreds of pounds of trash on the popular party destination, according to the press release.

Washington State University and the University of Idaho held a cleanup day for students on May 10.

The Corps could ban alcohol at Granite Point in the future if issues continue, according to the release. They also said they would continue to monitor usage of the area and ask people to take out trash they bring in, as well as asking visitors to keep glass away from the beach area at all times.
