Corps to Commence Millwood Lake Drawdown This Week (USA)

The Army Corps of Engineers will begin a drawdown August 15 on Millwood Lake for bank stabilization work at Cottonshed Park.

Beginning on Friday, the lake will be gradually drawn down to elevation 258.2 feet, which is one foot below the normal pool elevation. This will take about three days, depending on rainfall.

The drawdown will last until September 2 at which time the lake will be allowed to refill to its normal pool elevation of 259.2 feet.

After the drawdown begins, boaters should exercise extreme caution because submerged stumps and shallow areas may begin to appear. Also, boaters should be cautious when launching because of damage or sediment build up that may have occurred at the ends of the ramps.
