The Lower Colorado River Authority plans to lower the water levels on Lake Austin and Lake LBJ for six weeks starting on January 2.


This is to allow property owners the opportunity to repair and maintain docks, walls, and other shoreline property. According to lakeside property owners, this sort of maintenance wasn't able to be done during the drought.


Lake LBJ will be lowered four feet starting on Monday, and the drawdown will take 3 to 4 days. Lake Austin will be lowered 10 feet.


Property owners wishing to make repairs to docks at Lake LBJ will not require a permit, but property owners on Lake Austin must secure authorization to perform work on lakeside structures.


LCRA says the refilling of Lake LBJ will begin February 10, and will be completed by the 13th. Lake Austin's refill will begin on February 9, to also be completed by February 13th.
