THE AGFC reported yesterday that Norfork spillways would be closed but full power generation would continue. Trout Biologist Supervisor Christy Graham also said repairs were underway on AGFC accesses on both the White and North Fork rivers.
The Little Rock District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed the spillway gates at Norfork Dam at noon Tuesday but will continue releasing full power through the turbine generators, about 5,400 cubic feet per second.
Repairs are underway at AGFC accesses along the White and North Fork Rivers. Our folks will work to address any issues as quickly as possible. Thanks for your patience as we work to clean up after this event. Please let me know if you have any questions.
