Area Home Could Fall Into Arkansas River

A Mayflower home is in danger of falling into the Arkansas River.

Faulkner County Public Information Officer David Hogue say the house is on Jones Lane, and it’s because a fortification of the riverbank that was put in by the Army Corps of Engineers has eroded.

That fortification stops just before the homeowners property, so it has created an eddy – or swirling of river water – right in the yard.

Other homeowners that live on Jones Lane are forming an organization to lobby for river bank repair from the Army Corps Of Engineers, the state of Arkansas, FEMA or any other agency where they can get help.

Hogue says the situation will have to be repaired with rock in the river, built up to the house.
