The lake is not only the economic engine for the area, but it also supplies drinking water for over 100,000 people, some as far away as Little Rock. The lake has always been a pristine lake, with clear water that made for good recreational diving and provided clean drinking water. In the last few years, the turbidity of the lake has increased greatly.
