Lake Bartholomew Water Levels Lowered for Vegetation Control

WHEN: Tuesday, November 01, 2016  -  Tuesday, February 28, 2017

WHERE: Monroe, La.

The City of Monroe Water System has begun the process of lowering Lake Bartholomew for vegetation control and maintenance. The lake will be lowered at a rate of no more than 4 inches per day. During this time, the lake will be lowered by a total of 2 to 6 feet below normal pool stage. Lake Bartholomew will remain at that level for a minimum of 2 months and be re-filled no later than mid-February. This process will result in a slight lowering of Black Bayou and Bayou Desiard. Lake Bartholomew currently has a dense growth of coontail in the shallows, which could be reduced by lowering the lake for a minimum of two months. Hydrilla, which has plagued the lake for the past few years, would also be partially controlled, though its coverage is currently insignificant. Other emergent species growing along the shoreline would also be partially controlled. This two month process will not have any adverse effect on wildlife. Please feel free to call one of the individuals below for further information. Sean Benton, Water System Manager, City of Monroe, (318) 329-2395 or Ryan Daniel, Biologist Manager, LDWF District 2 (318) 343-4044.
