HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. -- Army Corps of Engineers officials ask private dock owners on Greers Ferry Lake to continually monitor water levels, as the lake levels recede, in order to avoid grounding their docks.

Boat dock permits are conditional upon the proper care and maintenance of the docks to ensure safety at all times.  Corps rangers patrol the lake to identify boat docks not in compliance.  A boat dock found to be grounded or in a state of disrepair could result in a citation to the owner(s) and could potentially jeopardize the permit altogether. 

For more information concerning boat docks and the use of government property, call the Greers Ferry Project Office at 501-362-2416 or stop by the office located near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
