In order to adequately assess the complete extent of the damage to the dam, the lake will need to be drawn down significantly below pool stage. The extent and duration of the draw down are not known at this time. Additional information will be provided in future notices as it becomes available.
Anacoco Lake which is located downstream of Vernon Lake is near pool stage. It is the intent to maintain Anacoco Lake near pool stage while Vernon Lake is being drawn down.
Questions regarding this notice may be directed to Mr. Brad Sticker at 318-561-5280 or Jonathan Lachney at 318-561-5103.
