BRINKLEY — Contractors with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission are working to repair the discharge pipe from Marion McCollum Lake Greenlee in Brinkley after evidence of a leak began to erode away a small portion of the lake’s levee.

The leak was caused by a bad seal in a joint between two concrete pipes. The water level on the lake has been maintained lower than normal to keep water from going through the control structure and eroding the levee further. With this repair, the water level can be maintained at full pool again. The lake will be allowed to fill to normal pool through rainfall, but well pumps may be used to complement local precipitation if current dry conditions persist through fall and winter.
