Smithville Lake scheduled early drawdown in 2020
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducts a two-foot drawdown bringing Smithville Lake to 862.20 mean sea level each December and hold it at that level through Apr. 15. This action will start a little sooner in 2020 to allow construction crews to work quickly and safely without the need to demobilize for spillway releases early in the project.
