Arkansas Waterways Commission

Our Rivers. Our Responsibility.


About Us

Meet the Arkansas Waterways Team at the helm of the AWC. Staff and commissioners are hard at work making sure that economic development and infrastructure improvements along the state's navigable rivers are sailing forward into an all-time high.

The Arkansas Waterways Commission is the sole state agency responsible for developing, promoting, and protecting waterborne transportation in Arkansas. The Commission also promotes economic development for ports on the five commercially navigable rivers of the state: The Arkansas, Mississippi, Ouachita, Red, and White Rivers.
