  • Arkabutla Lake Highlights Access Points during low water

    Vicksburg, Miss. – Arkabutla Lake has experienced low water conditions since the Emergency Action Plan for Arkabutla Dam was activated in early May due to issues identified on the dam. The lake will continue to see lower than normal water levels for the foreseeable future until repairs are completed. As the lake level was lowered, most of the traditional water access points became unusable and have remained that way.
