Water-Related Rules and Regulations for Public Comment
LCRA posts water-related rules and regulations open for public comment on this page.
LCRA is accepting public comments on a proposed new dredging ordinance that will establish rules for commercial dredging on the Highland Lakes for the first time, and a proposal to move all dredging requirements, currently found in the Highland Lakes Watershed Ordinance, to the new Highland Lakes Dredge and Fill Ordinance. LCRA also is accepting comments on a new dredging fee schedule.
The LCRA Board of Directors is expected to consider the proposed changes at its Nov. 17 meeting in Austin.
Review the proposed changes:
- Proposed Highland Lakes Dredge and Fill Ordinance and fee schedule
- Proposed updates to the Highland Lakes Watershed Ordinance (nonsubstantive edits to conform format and numbering are not shown) and fee schedule
Written comments may be submitted through Friday, Sept. 24.
If the proposed changes are approved by the LCRA Board later this year, the new dredging ordinance and changes to the watershed ordinance will take effect Jan. 1, 2022.
LCRA plans to review the Highland Lakes Watershed Ordinance in the spring of 2022 and will seek public comment on additional potential changes to the ordinance at that time.
