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:

    Written comments may be submitted through Friday, Sept. 24.

    LCRA will hold a public meeting to accept comments on the proposed changes from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15. The meeting will be in Building A at LCRA’s Dalchau Service Center, 3505 Montopolis Drive, in Austin. Comments will be limited to five minutes each. Anyone who has submitted written comments does not need to also submit comments during the meeting.

    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.
