Corps: Beaver Lake low but not record-setting

Posted: July 26, 2012 at 4:31 a.m.

Lake levels at Beaver Lake, as seen Tuesday from a boat landing near the Arkansas 12 bridge, are about 7 feet below seasonal levels, according to the Army Corps of Engineers.

The dry summer means Beaver Lake is running a few feet lower than normal, but the lake is not deemed to be afflicted by drought under the federal government’s standards, an official with the Army Corps of Engineers said.

I remember this past spring that the Corp dropped the lake 5 ft because they thought it was going to rain sure would be nice to have that water now. If I remember right it didn't rain at all,and still hasn't. This would be a good time to move some of those camping area's to higher ground in case it ever does rain again.
