The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has scheduled a drawdown for Bundick Lake in Beauregard Parish on August 1, 2019.

The drawdown was requested by the Bundick Lake Commission to allow the parish and landowners to repair and maintain shoreline facilities.

During the 2018 drawdown, rainfall was higher than average, preventing the necessary decrease in the lake’s water level to complete the repairs. During the this drawdown, the lake level will be lowered 8 feet below pool stage at the rate of 2 to 4 inches per day. The control structure will be closed on or about November 29, 2019, to allow water levels to return to normal.

Along with the opportunity for shoreline maintenance, the August drawdown will assist with aquatic vegetation control and bottom sediment compaction.

For information regarding the drawdown, contact Sean Kinney, LDWF Biologist Manager, at skinney@wlf.la.gov 337-491-2575.
