Study of Low-Water Arkansas River Dam Approved

Bixby City Manager Micky Webb has presented a formal request to the Bixby City Council that seeks a feasibility study on the installation of a low water dam on the Arkansas River.
The dam would be near Memorial Drive in Bixby.
Previous studies have indicated that drainage problems could prevent the installation of a dam, but according to Webb, the relocation of a sand plant now on the river near the Memorial bridge leaves the area in need of beautification and the idea is being revisited.
Webb indicated that the city, if approved for the project, will use Vision 2025 money to construct the dam.
