Boundary line maintenance to be conducted on Lake Dardanelle and Ozark Lake

 

The Army Corps of Engineers is advising landowners adjacent to public lands on Lake Dardanelle and Ozark Lake that survey crews will soon conduct boundary line maintenance along the government boundary. 

The boundary maintenance on Lake Dardanelle will cover about 36 miles beginning at the north boundary of Shoal Bay Park and continue eastward along the south bank of the Arkansas River through the Delaware Bay and Dardanelle Bay areas, ending at Riverview Park in Dardanelle, Ark.

The boundary maintenance on Ozark Lake will cover about 21 miles and begin near the mouth of White Oak Creek. The crews will work westward along the north bank of the Arkansas River through the Mulberry Bottoms area, along the Mulberry River, ending on the north bank of the Arkansas River south of Mulberry, Ark.

Small craft advisory lifted

Small craft advisory lifted

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Army Corps of Engineers has lifted the small craft advisory on the Arkansas River.

Before setting out in a pleasure craft, always check flow conditions.  Corps officials urge boaters to always use caution on the river.  Wear a life jacket, and never operate a boat while intoxicated.  Give commercial towboats an extra wide berth for safety's sake.  They are heavier than freight trains and not nearly as maneuverable as pleasure boats.  It can take a towboat more than a half mile to stop.

Advisories are issued when flows reach 70,000 cubic feet per second.  Currents become swifter and stronger, and large debris is carried downstream.
