Historical Information

The Plum Bayou Levee District was created by Act 31 of the Arkansas General Assembly in 1905. Permission was given in the Act to sell bonds to fund the construction of the Plum Bayou Levee, which stands on the north side of the Arkansas River from the area of England, Lonoke County, Arkansas, to north of Pine Bluff, Jefferson County, Arkansas. The levee also crosses the southeast corner of Pulaski County, Arkansas. Property owners of the levee district were and are taxed to cover the cost of maintaining the levee.
