Mountain Home, Ark. (USACE) - The Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District began a spillway release from Norfork Dam today while the siphon used for minimum flow releases is out of service.

One gate was opened less than half a foot at 1:30 p.m. today and will release about 200 cubic feet per second until the siphon is put back into service.  Water temperatures are currently not a concern but are being monitored closely.
