Wastewater Leaking into Bull Shoals

A fire in the Sugarloaf Wastewater Treatment Plant near Diamond City, Arkansas casued partially treated wastewater to be released into Bull Shoals lake.

The fire in late April damaged the plant, which has been releasing partially treated wastewater into the Sugarloaf Creek area of the Lake.

The plant is being repaired. In the meantime, officials recommend avoiding contact with water in that part of the lake.
