LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A small craft advisory for the Arkansas River downstream of Dardanelle Lock and Dam has been issued by The Army Corps of Engineers. 

Recent rains in Arkansas and Oklahoma have caused flows to rise. During high flows, strong currents and large debris can threaten the safety of pleasure craft. 

Small craft advisories are issued when flows exceed 70,000 cubic feet per second. Flows at Dardanelle Lock and Dam near Russellville are near advisory levels of 70,000 c.f.s. Flows at Ormond Lock and Dam at Morrilton are about 70,000 c.f.s.   

Flows at Murray Lock and Dam at Little Rock are about 80,000 c.f.s.  

Flows at Emmett Sanders Lock and Dam at Pine Bluff are about 85,000 c.f.s.  

More rain could push flows higher or cause the advisory to remain in effect longer.
