June 20, 2011

"The potential recreational value of a large lake, which would be created by the proposed Saline River dam, is evident in last year's attendance at similar lakes which have become major recreational attractions. Lake Ouachita, formed by the Blakely Mountain dam near Hot Springs, had 1,743,000 visitors, and Bull Shoals reservoir, extending from Northern Arkansas into Southern Missouri, had 1,663,000. The lake impounded by the proposed Saline dam would not be as large as these two, and the number of visitors it would attract annually is a matter of speculation.
