LCRA to lower Lake LBJ in early 2019

The Lower Colorado River Authority will lower lakes LBJ and Marble Falls for about eight weeks in early 2019 to assist lakeside property owners recovering from recent historic flooding along the Colorado and Llano rivers. The drawdown will make it easier for residents to remove debris and maintain or repair docks, retaining walls and other infrastructure. The drawdowns for both lakes will begin Sunday, Dec. 30th, and will conclude on Saturday, Feb. 23rd. LCRA will lower Lake LBJ about 4 feet, from its normal operating range of 824.4 to 825 feet above mean sea level (feet msl) to a range of 820.2 to 820.8 feet msl. The lake will be lowered about 1 foot a day for four days beginning Dec. 30.
