ASHDOWN, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District will begin lowering Millwood Lake on Sept. 15 to inspect shoreline erosion, provide bank stabilization and perform maintenance on numerous Millwood Lake boat ramps. 

The lake will be lowered to near elevation 257.2 until Oct. 1. Afterward, the level will be gradually raised until it reaches its normal top of conservation pool at 259.2.

Real time lake level information can be found on the USACE Little Rock smartphone app which can be found in most app stores.

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.
