D'Arbonne Lake Spillway Gates To Open In September For Fall Drawdown Through the cooperative management efforts of the Bayou D'Arbonne Lake Watershed District and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, D'Arbonne Lake in Union Parish will be lowered 5 feet below normal pool stage beginning Sept. 2, 2008 and ending Jan. 15, 2009.
Drawdowns of D'Arbonne Lake have been conducted every four years to allow for shoreline maintenance. This year, the drawdown will also help to control aquatic vegetation and allow for repair work to the spillway.
The last drawdown was in the fall of 2004.
