LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District is accepting comments through Aug. 30 to assist in the preparation and evaluation of a study to restore the aquatic ecosystem, owned by Central Arkansas Water, along the Maumelle River in Pulaski County.
Man-made low water river crossings and the construction of levees along the Maumelle River are causing erosion and sedimentation problems in the area to be studied, located three miles west of Lake Maumelle on property owned by CAW. These problems, combined with the loss of forests and the channelization of smaller streams in the study area, has led to an overall degradation of the aquatic ecosystem in the watershed.
Comments and questions should be directed to CAW Project Study Manager at 501-324-5735; mailed to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 700 West Capitol Avenue, Room 7500, Little Rock, AR 72203; or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
