Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam (L&D 5)
AR, UNITED STATES
01.29.2021

The Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam, or Lock and Dam No. 5 is located at Navigation Mile 86.3 and began operating in 1968. Legislation (HR 781) passed in the Senate on June 24, 2008, after being passed in the House of Representatives on July 17, 2007, renamed Lock and Dam No. 5 of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System to the “Colonel Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam” in honor of Colonel Maynard.

“Colonel Maynard was a great asset to the Corps of Engineers, as well as to this country,” Senator Inhofe said of the legislation he supported. “Maynard led the planning, design, and construction of 13 locks and dams of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, which at the time was the largest civil works project ever undertaken by the Corps. This system serves many water resource purposes, including clean energy from hydroelectric power, navigation for all types of industries, recreation, and many others that are essential to Oklahoma and to our nation.
