Trees Near Lake Fayetteville Dam To Be Cleared To Prevent Future Dam Failure

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Nineteen sycamore trees near the Lake Fayetteville dam will be cut down.

The trees are located on the east side of the paved trail that runs along the dam between the marina and spillway bridge. 

Fayetteville city officials say the reason for the trees coming down are due to potential damage to the dam, if the trees are blown over during high winds, causing dam failure and risking damage to people and businesses.

According to the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, the Lake Fayetteville dam is classified as a high-risk dam. It's given to all dams in the state that could lead to a loss of human life if they were to fail.
