White River Basin Study underway

Arkansas State University

This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I'm Johnathan Reaves.  Arkansas State University and the Little Rock District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are working on a five-year study of the hydrology and water needs associated with the upper White River Basin.  Public meetings have been held, with the last one being held in Branson on October 29th.  Telling us more about this is Associate Professor of Civil Engineering Dr. Yeonsang Hwang and program manager of the Little Rock District of the Army Corps of Engineers Jason Funkhouser.  Funkhouser joined me over the phone and tells what the Army Corps is doing.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
