MILLWOOD LAKE – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District will begin lowering Millwood Lake Thursday to inspect shoreline erosion, provide bank stabilization, and make minor repairs to the boat ramp at Beards Bluff in Hempstead County.

The lake will be brought down near elevation 257.2 until Oct. 12, 2020. The Corps will gradually bring the lake level up to elevation 259.2 when the work is complete.

Millwood Lake’s top of conservation pool is elevation 259.2 and the top of flood pool is elevation 287.0. 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.

For more information, contact the Millwood Project Office at 870-898-3343.
