Arkansas River Valley RC&D
The Arkansas River Valley RC&D Council is a sponsor of the Point Remove Wetlands Reclamation and Irrigation Project in Pope and Conway counties.

This is a water conservation and wildlife management project that will help restore wetland habitat on about 5,200 acres and provide irrigation water for about 11,000 acres.

 Water will be lifted from the Arkansas River and delivered to the wildlife management areas and crops using this flume and existing channels.

This project is a joint effort with the local Improvement District, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Ducks Unlimited, The Arkansas Soil and Water Conservation Commission, and USDA-NRCS.  NRCS is constructing the water delivery system at an estimated cost of $8 million
