In response to overnight rains and increased floodgate operations, effective immediately LCRA is closing Inks Lake and lakes Marble Falls and LBJ to recreational boating. (Earlier this week LCRA closed a portion of lakes Marble Falls and LBJ to recreational boating. As of this morning, the recreational boating ban is extended to the entirety of both lakes.)

The LCRA's decision to open three flood gates at Mansfield Dam is prompting a ban on all commercial or navigational in and all recreational use of what officials are calling the "Flood Ban Area". The ban went into effect at noon on June 1 and lasts until noon on June 3.

The "Flood Ban Area" consists of Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake and the Colorado River downstream of Longhorn Dam.
