Lastly, the Beaver Water District (BWD) supplies drinking water to 350,000 people/industries in Northwest Arkansas—and without the district there would be no Beaver Dam or Beaver Lake. More than 50 years ago, visionary community leaders got together to discuss the need for a long-term supply of clean, safe water for Northwest Arkansas. With an eye to the future and knowledge that a large lake was the best source of water, these citizens worked to establish Beaver Lake Reservoir. Beaver Water District was created to pay for the drinking water supply allocation of the lake.
