[ARCHIVED] Lake LBJ Refill Now Set to Begin Feb. 24th

LLANO AND BURNET COUNTIES, Texas – In consultation with the Llano and Burnet county judges, the mayors of Horseshoe Bay, Marble Falls and other incorporated towns on lakes LBJ and Marble Falls, LCRA is today announcing an amended schedule for the current drawdown of Lake LBJ.

The refill of Lake LBJ now is scheduled to begin Feb. 24. The refill of Lake Marble Falls continues to be scheduled to begin March 18.

Last week, LCRA announced it was extending the drawdown timetable by three weeks – to March 18 – after local officials requested an extension. However, officials have since requested the timetable be shortened a bit on Lake LBJ. “After further evaluating the timetable for the drawdown, elected officials on Lake LBJ have now informed us that shortening the drawdown to February 24 works better for their constituents,“ said Phil Wilson, LCRA general manager. “LCRA is pleased to be responsive to our local elected officials, and at their request, we’ll begin refilling Lake LBJ on February 24.” Public officials near Lake LBJ expressed appreciation for the change regarding the Lake LBJ timetable. Llano County Judge Ron Cunningham said: “We are appreciative of LCRA collaborating with the 2018 flood-affected counties and cities to meet the needs of our citizens and businesses. There is no single schedule for lowering the rivers and lakes to meet everyone’s needs; however, the revised schedule for refilling Lake LBJ will allow our communities and businesses to restore operations, which will better serve our citizens and visitors to our communities.” Burnet County Judge James Oakley said: “As always, Phil Wilson and his LCRA team have proven themselves to be responsive to the input of local elected officials and deliberate in their actions. I applaud this revised schedule for Lake LBJ.” Horseshoe Bay Mayor Steve Jordan said: “After consulting with my constituents, I believe beginning the refill of Lake LBJ on February 24 is the right thing to do.’’ Marble Falls Mayor John Packer said he is pleased Lake Marble Falls will continue to remain drawn down until mid-March.
