ROGERS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is cautioning lake users about potential storm debris hazards on Beaver Lake following the May 2024 storms.

Officials urge boaters to take extra safety measures as some areas may include floating debris that wouldn’t be there under normal circumstances such as trees or docks. Many of these hazards are near the water’s surface and not easily visible.

Boaters should slow down, wear life jackets, use depth finders or other navigation resources and give the shoreline a wide berth.

USACE would also like your help notifying residents around the lake that were affected by last weekend’s storms about two programs offered to help their recovery efforts.

Hazardous tree removal:

If you have a hazardous tree blocking your walking path or your dock access, you can submit a request online at

A ranger will contact you to work the request. Please allow up to 24 hours for your request to be processed. Please also be prepared to provide a photo of the hazard. Photos will take the place of onsite inspections for hazardous trees until June 14, 2024.

Dock replacement:

If you have questions about dock replacement or repair as a result of storm damage, visit our May 2024 Beaver Lake Storm Damage Shoreline FAQ page at or call the Duty Room at the Beaver Lake Project Office at 501-340-1710.

Information on water levels can be found on the Little Rock District website at 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, on Facebook at and on X at
