ASHDOWN, Ark. — U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District will begin lowering Millwood Lake on Wednesday to inspect shoreline erosion, provide bank stabilization and perform maintenance on numerous Millwood Lake boat ramps.
The lake will be lowered to near elevation 257 feet until Oct. 1. Afterward, the level will be gradually raised until it reaches its normal top of conservation pool at 259 feet.
Boaters are encouraged to wear a life jacket and exercise caution during the drawdown as submerged stumps and shallow areas will be more prominent, especially in boat lanes.
For more information, contact the Millwood Project Office at 870-898-3343.
