RANDOLPH COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Crews are continuing to work on the Black River Levee.

Randolph County Judge David Jansen said crews are working on small sections of the levee right now.

He said larger levee breaches will not be repaired until mid-summer.

Jansen also said the county should find out by May whether or not they have been approved for a levee study.

If they are approved for the study with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it could reveal some final fixes for the levee.
