DARDANELLE AND GREERS FERRY PROJECTS, ARKANSAS
Mr. BEVILL. What is the basis for the increased estimate for land acquisition and flowage easements at the Dardanelle and Greers Ferry projects in fiscal year 1986? General DACEY. Sir, due to topographic errors in the maps used for the initial acquisition of land and flowage easements, additional real estate is required at both the Dardanelle Lock and Dam and the Greers Ferry Lake for project operations. Approximately 115 acres are required at Dardanelle Lock and Dam and approximately 25 acres are required at Greers Ferry Lake, each containing a portion of fee simple and a portion of flowage easement.
