Bono Lake filling up

Posted: Updated:
BONO, AR (KAIT) - The water is rising on Bono Lake, but not as much as state and local officials would like.

Craighead County Judge Ed Hill says the lake could use another 6 feet of water. He said right now it's just a waiting game as Mother Nature fills up the lake. This winter it'll fill up and see how it's going to hold water and move forward from there.”

The next step for the lake is decide the responsibilities between Craighead County and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Hill said the Quorum Court will review the agreement between Craighead County and the AGFC.

If county leaders are happy with the agreement, it'll move to a vote for approval.
