HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers began a spillway release April 23 from Greers Ferry Dam because both hydropower units are currently off-line for maintenance.
This morning three gates will be opened to one-foot and one gate will be opened to ¾ of a foot for an average release of about 3,000 cubic feet per second during a 24-hour period.
The releases are being made in accordance with the White River Water Control Plan.
Since April 14, the regulating stage decreased to 14 feet at Newport and 16 feet at Georgetown in conjunction with the start of the agricultural season.
