HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District will begin a spillway release from Greers Ferry Dam this afternoon.
Since water levels downstream of the lake are receding, the increasing channel capacity will allow for one gates to be opened one foot releasing about 850 cubic feet per second. Combined with the 24-hour hydropower release, the total release will be about 7,000 c.f.s. This release is slightly larger than a normal release from the two hydropower turbines at the current lake level.
For more information call the Greers Ferry Project office at 501-362-2416, or stop by the office near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs.
Daily lake information can be obtained at www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil or the Corps’ mobile App which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
