LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- One year after the storm, debris in the Little Maumelle River is being addressed.
Docks, boats and other debris became entangled during a flood in May of 2011. It was never cleaned up.
On Friday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sent a letter to the owners of River Valley Marina giving them a deadline.
The marina must submit "a reasonable plan" by June 8 detailing when the debris will be removed, or the owners face a fine of $27,500.
What was the marina's response to this notice?
"It was a positive response," said Laurie Driver of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. "We sent them a letter saying we needed to have a plan. We're trying to strike a balance there where we give them time and effort to get the mess cleaned up. But it has been a length of time and they need to make a plan and get it done."
