River Spirit Casino Resort Chief Executive Officer Pat Crofts responds to the extended dates of the water release from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers by adjusting the estimated closure of the Resort to June 5.
On Wednesday, current hotel guests were relocated to other properties. Guests with reservations are being contacted to reschedule their visits.
“We remain fortunate that our engineering design accounted for a 100-year-flood. However, this level of water was not a previous measurement. The new water level being released today is increasing the water on our south and north parking lots, on the front service road, on the south great lawn, in the subterranean parking and on our service road leading to our loading docks,” said CEO Pat Crofts. “All of the Resort hotel, Margaritaville and Ruth’s Chris restaurants, Margaritaville and River Spirit Casinos, Paradise Cove Theater all remain, and will remain dry. The Resort Pool is at the biggest risk at this time.”
