LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Army Corps of Engineers is reminding Arkansas River users that the small craft advisory issued last month remains in effect. The advisory was issued following heavy rains, and subsequent rains have caused flows to remain above safe levels for small craft.
Advisories are issued when flows reach 70,000 cubic feet per second. Currents become swifter and stronger, and large debris is carried downstream.
More rain could push flows higher or cause the advisory to remain in effect longer. Daily river information can be obtained at www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil or the Corps’ mobile App which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
