Why venture out into different diving opportunities
What to do before
the white river
There are six lakes that are made up from the massive White River. These lakes include: Beaver Lake, Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake, Norfork Lake, Greers Ferry Lake, and Clearwater Lake. The U.S. Congress approved the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to build and operate these lakes starting in 1938. These lakes were created slowly and were built to control flooding and food loss. This was known as the Flood Control Act of 1938. Bull Shoals Dam was completed in 1951 being the 5th largest dam in the USA. Table Rock Dam was next and completed in 1958. The last to be constructed was Beaver Lake Dam in 1966 and was the most cost effective large-dam on the White River only costing 46 million compared to Bull Shoals – 86 million and Table Rock at 65 million.
For the next time you go out and dive one of these lakes, remember the history in which is behind it.
