ROGERS, Ark. - The Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District is making spillway releases from Beaver Dam to pass runoff from this current rain event.
The Corps has opened all seven gates 1-foot each releasing about 7,500 cubic feet per second as well as 3,750 c.f.s from the power generation turbines for a total combined release of 11,250 c.f.s.
Beaver Lake water levels are still rising because of heavy rainfall runoff. These minimized water releases are required to ensure the lake does not exceed its flood storage capacity.
