Mill Creek Reservoir to Undergo Drawdown

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has received the request from Mill Creek Lake Commission to conduct a drawdown on Mill Creek Reservoir in Bienville Parish.  The request was approved by LDWF and the Lake Commission plans to lower the lake beginning August 15, 2022.

This drawdown is for shoreline maintenance and erosion control.

The lake will be lowered 4 to 6 inches per day until it reaches the target goal of 8 feet below normal pool stage.  The lake will be held at this level until January 15, 2023, at which time the water control gate will be closed and the lake allowed to refill.
