VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District will begin pool draw down at Thatcher Lock and Dam on Nov. 19, 2021, to make repairs to the seal of the hinge crest gate.
The pool at Thatcher Lock and Dam is expected to fall as much as six inches per day, from 77 to 72 feet. The USACE Vicksburg District is working with City of Camden personnel to create a slower draw down from 73 to 72 feet to closely monitor the city’s water supply intake pipes. It is possible that the draw down might have to continue to 71 feet if the inspection cannot be completed at 72 feet.
