Lake Travis Closed for Recreational Use

Lake Travis Closed for Recreational Use
16 October 2018

The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) closed Lake Travis on Monday 15 October 2018 and it remains closed at this time.  This closure is due to the high, fast-moving floodwaters.  LCRA has also closed lakes Marble Falls, LBJ, Inks and Buchanan.

Per the LCRA website, the Highland Lakes watershed is experiencing historic flooding.  This is a serious situation and people should take action to protect people and property.  The lake closures will remain in effect until further notice.

LCRA will open floodgates at Mansfield and Tom Miller dams today.  Flood operations are underway at Starcke, Wirtz and Inks dams. 

City staff will continue to monitor our roadways, storm water management system, and waterways to provide updates to our citizens.  If you feel that you are in any danger, please call 911.
