ROGERS, Ark. — The Army Corps of Engineers is looking to buy land on Beaver Lake that wasn’t purchased when the lake was first built decades ago.
They say this land acquisition study impacts about 500 landowners around Beaver Lake, who have all been notified. On average, the Corps wants to purchase one-fourth of an acre from each landowner.
“The Corps of Engineers should have bought that land in the first place but didn’t have the same technology as we do now back in the 50s," said Jay Townsend, Chief of Public Affairs for the Army Corp of Engineers Little Rock District. "So, what we are doing now is trying to go back and right the wrong. So, they’ve had land that we’ve been putting water on for almost 70 years now."
