Corps to close Sardis Lake outlet gates through September

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District will conduct scheduled maintenance and inspections at three of its north Mississippi lakes.

Arkabutla, Grenada and Sardis will temporarily close each lake’s outlet gates from approximately mid-August through the end of September.

During the outlet gate closures, the outlet channels at Arkabutla and Grenada lakes will be closed to fishing. Additionally, Sardis Lake’s three lower lake beaches, Paradise Point, Main Beach and Cypress Point, will be closed to swimming.

The periodic maintenance and inspection of flood control structures helps ensure that the overall flood control system continues to function as designed.
