S. engineers hero estimated tod;,y that tlie Arkansas river cau.ses £1.-" 260.000 in cave-in damage ve.irly along its 4(50 mile moanderir.^ course through the state. Every year, said the ciifMiir-crs' office, 3,000 acres of alluvia! river mottom land between Fort Smith and Pine Bluff are yielded to tl.e river. However, not all of the soil is lost entirely. Much of It ,.• virtually piles-up ashore do'.vnslrcjiyr.." but it will take years for llv;se pile-ups to rcnr.h a tillable point. The cave-ins also undermine bridges, levees, highways, railroad and utility lines. It costs about $400.000 annun^y to set back and repair levee-;. One of the headaches for th..- er.-... gineers, they say. is determining how far back from the str:am beet to place levees to protect from cave-ins and .still protect the.; maxU mum amount of farm land. Mile posts established jlons the. unprcdicatable river a few years ago, in many cases, no longer represent a mile in distance. Changes in the river's course have cut or lengthened the distances between the markers. Some now are a qunrter-mile apart; some throe' miles. Engineers say the Arkansas, the state's largest stream, carries the fourth heaviest volume of silt o£ any river in the United States. It is estimated that 120 million tons of sediment flow past Little Rock each year. The concentration of sediment in the Arkansas exceed.'; that of the Mississippi, although" the Mississippi river has a larger volume because it is much greater in size. Some of the silt cornos from as far away as Colorado, via tributaries. To make a long-range program of building locks and dams on the" Arkansas successful, engineers say upstream sediment catch basins' will have to be constructed. jmart Wins Memphis.
