Little Rock Lake Drawdown
Little Rock Lake Drawdown

Little Rock Lake has historically been one of the most polluted in the state, turning a murky green color in the summer months. It’s thick and limits the sunlight that can get through the water, choking out plant and marine life. Groups have worked with area farmers to reduce phosphorus runoff, which has helped. This drawdown and the addition of new plants should do the rest to stabilize the lake for the future. The DNR believes we will get that flip and it’ll start taking care of itself.
