LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reminding everyone to practice good water safety habits over the upcoming Independence Day weekend.
Water levels are high at many of the Little Rock District lakes and there is a small craft advisory in effect on the Arkansas River. High water can pose safety hazards such as underwater obstacles or floating debris, exercise caution if on the water this weekend.
