ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — There was enough rain in Arkansas that the Army Corps of Engineers will do a spillway release at Beaver and Bull Shoals Dams Tuesday, May 26, at 5 p.m. and 4 p.m., respectively, — weather permitting.
“Total spillway flow will be around 3,700 cubic feet per second (c.f.s.). The total release from Beaver Dam, when combined with hydropower releases will be around 7,500 c.f.s.,” according to a Corps statement.
At Bull Shoals Dam, the total spillway flow will be around 9,500 cubic feet per second. The total release, when combined with hydropower releases, will be around 13,250 c.f.s.
The Corps recommends for people who live in the area to take precautionary plans if high water heads near the river’s edge.
The Corps has an interactive inundation map. This is to help out people in the area to make plans should they need to leave. It shows areas along the White River that may experience high water due to rainfall.
Every effort has been made to keep the information accurate, but the Corps said, “these are projections and actual water
levels may vary.”
