Lake Conway Drainage Plan

  • Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will begin to drain Lake Conway today.
  • Initially, the lake will be drained by opening only one gate. This is to prevent flooding downstream and protect nearby greentree reservoirs.
  • Without rain, lake levels are estimated to drop about 6 inches per week.
  • As trees downstream become dormant this winter, AGFC will open more gates (potentially as many as eight), which could drop the water level by more than 2 feet per week.

How to help clean up Lake Conway

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will host the second of three shoreline cleanups at Lake Conway from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. May 16-18. According to Nick Feltz, regional fisheries supervisor at the AGFC’s Mayflower office, dumpsters will actually be available for disposal of lakebed trash May 16-19, but the AGFC will only hold organized cleanups
