The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District reminds everyone that Memorial Day weekend is one of the top three busiest weekends of the year for the region’s lakes and rivers and officials expect this year will be no exception.

With water levels high across the state, boaters should exercise extreme caution. The Arkansas River currently has a small craft advisory in effect and law enforcement officials will be on the lookout for water safety and boating violations at area lakes.

Please remember to wear your life jacket when on or near water, don’t drink alcoholic beverages and operate a boat, never swim alone and stick to designated swim areas.
