Century-old Underground Aqueduct Collapses in Eureka Springs

Jun 13, 2018

A section of hand-built aqueduct in downtown Eureka Springs has collapsed beneath a commercial parking lot, causing a cave-in. The tunnel is a conduit for the spring-fed headwaters for East Leatherwood Creek and a downtown stormwater drainage system. Repairs are underway, and comprehensive measures are being taken to prevent future cave-ins downstream.
