The Highland Lakes watershed is experiencing historic flooding. This is a serious situation and people should take action to protect people and property. Also:-- Four floodgates remain open at Mansfield Dam.
LCRA will NOT need to open additional floodgates at Mansfield Dam today. It is still possible we will need to open up to four additional floodgates over the next few days. Please check this page often for updates. -- See LCRA's
Flood Operations Report for more on current conditions on the Highland Lakes. -- Lake Travis is well into its flood pool, and is projected to rise to between 705 to 710 feet above mean sea level by Friday. -- Flood operations continue at Buchanan, Inks, Wirtz, Starcke, Mansfield and Tom Miller dams. Flows throughout the Highland Lakes are swift and high. -- LCRA has closed lakes Buchanan, Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls and Travis until further notice. -- Check LCRA's
Hydromet for rainfall totals, stream flow and lake levels.
