L'Anguille River to be Studied by UA-F Group

November 28, 2003 - Posted at 8:21 a.m. CDT

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Some professors at the Fayetteville campus of the University of Arkansas are putting together a computer program to help planners make decisions on land and water use in three watersheds, including one in the eastern Arkansas Delta.

Two of the three watersheds involved are in northwest Arkansas - the Spavinaw Creek watershed that Arkansas shares with Oklahoma, and Beaver Lake, which provides water for much of the booming area.  The third area to be included in the program is the L'Anguille River in the Delta, between Jonesboro and its confluence with the St. Francis River.

Marty Matlock, an associate professor at the university, said program users will be able to crunch data and run computer models on how changing land issues will affect water quality and water conservation.
