TRUMANN (AGFC) –
St. Francis Lake near Trumann will not be drawn down to make repairs to
the wash out near the dam in 2013. Due to past flooding, significant
erosion has occurred. The washout is allowing water to bypass the dam.
Game and Fish Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are
continuing discussions to identify a permanent fix and sources of
funding for the needed repairs. Until repairs can be made, lake water
levels will be monitored and maintained as close to normal as possible.
