Press Release from U. S. Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District will conduct maintenance testing on the hydropower units at Bulls Shoals Dam Monday through Friday.
The hydropower releases will occur during daylight hours and will not match up with Southwestern Power Administration’s generation schedule.
If inclement weather occurs, the releases will be rescheduled.
Horns are sounded before water is released from the powerhouses, sluiceway or spillways. When this occurs, changes in water level can happen rapidly. Officials with the Corps say when you hear the horns, leave the areas upstream and downstream of the dam immediately.
Officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mountain Home Project Office say they regret any inconvenience this may cause.
