MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Water releases will increase at Bull Shoals Dam on Monday.
The Army Corps of Engineers says both the spillway and the hydro power dam will increase release to continue evacuation of stored flood water. According to the Mountain Home Project Office officials, water downstream of the dam will rise anywhere from six to nine inches due to the extra 30-thousand c.f.s. release.
Engineers are asking all landowners in the area to move any temporary encroachments are removed from the flood plain and all docks are secure.
