ROGERS, Ark. – The Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District opened all seven spillway gates at Beaver Dam around noon Sunday, June 23, 2019. The combined flow from the spillways and an electric generation turbine was 11,400 c.f.s. A later release from the Corp indicated the flow level was being increased to 19,500 c.f.s. by 5:00 p.m. Following weekend rains, the lake level at Beaver was approaching 1130 feet above sea level, prompting the additional water release.
