Lake Travis to reopen after historic flooding, other lakes remain closed

Lake Travis will reopen for recreational use at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, November 7. A few lakes in Central Texas were closed after historical flooding in mid-October. 

Lakes Buchanan and Inks Lake are open to recreational use again as well. Lakes LBJ and Marble Falls will remain closed until at least Friday, November 9 because of debris and other unsafe conditions.

According to the Lower Colorado River Authority, property owners are allowed on the closed lakes during this time for the limited purpose of recovering or securing damaged property from the recent flood, if the property location is known. Boating on the lakes remains dangerous, and time on the lakes recovering property should be minimized.

Submerged hazards may be difficult to see, especially at night.
