ROGERS, Ark. --
ROGERS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is cautioning boaters about low water conditions at Beaver Lake.
Less than average rainfall this summer has led to lower lake levels at Beaver Lake. Although low, this is within the normal operation of the dam for flood risk management and hydroelectric power production.
Officials urge boaters to take extra safety measures as some areas may encompass underwater obstacles such as land points, tree stumps, rock formations and standing timber.
Boaters should slow down, wear life jackets, use depth finders or other navigation resources, stay in main river channels, give the shoreline a wide birth and be especially careful at night.
Information on water levels can be found on the Little Rock District website at www.swl.usace.army.mil by clicking on the water level button or by using the district smartphone app that can be found by searching “USACE Little Rock” in all major app stores.
Additional recreation information can be found on the Internet at www.swl.usace.army.mil, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/littlerockusace and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/usacelittlerock.
