LCRA closed the second of four open floodgates at Mansfield Dam Saturday morning. Under current conditions, LCRA expects to close the remaining two floodgates one at a time over the next few days, until all floodgates are closed on or about Wednesday, Nov. 7. This plan could be modified if the basin receives additional significant rainfall. Lake Travis is now falling about 1 foot a day.

Lake Buchanan is open for public use. Inks Lake will re-open to the public at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3.
Lakes LBJ, Marble Falls and Travis will remain closed until at least Tuesday, Nov. 6, because of debris and unsafe conditions caused by the recent flooding. LCRA will reevaluate conditions on Tuesday to determine when the lakes will be reopened. Property owners are allowed on the 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.

Efforts to restore Austin Water to normal complicated by “cloudiness”

Oct 24 2018 4:28PM
LCRA
Flood operations have ceased at Buchanan, Inks, Wirtz and Starcke dams. However, there is rain in the forecast today (Thursday) for much of the upper basin of the Colorado River watershed. Depending on where the rain falls, there is a possibility LCRA will need to re-open floodgates at one or more of the dams to move floodwater downstream. LCRA will use the Flood Operations Notification Service (FONS) to notify FONS subscribers if flood operations start again. People near all dams along the Highland Lakes should stay alert to changing conditions and be ready to take action to protect people and property.

Four floodgates remain open at Mansfield Dam, which forms Lake Travis as LCRA discharges water from the flood pool at Lake Travis. Downstream of Mansfield Dam, four floodgates remain partially open at Tom Miller Dam, which forms Lake Austin. LCRA expects the floodgates to remain open at Mansfield and Tom Miller dams through at least the end of the month. Under current conditions, LCRA does not anticipate having to open additional floodgates on Mansfield or Tom Miller dams over the next few days. However, we are still in a dynamic situation, with additional rain in the forecast. If it becomes necessary to open additional floodgates, we will alert the public and local officials immediately. Anyone downstream of Mansfield or Tom Miller dams should remain prepared for the potential that additional floodgates may be needed. Please check this page frequently for updates.

Additional rainfall could cause LCRA to need to open up to four additional floodgates at Mansfield Dam to move floodwaters downstream. If that happens, we will alert the public and local officials immediately. Anyone downstream of Mansfield Dam should remain prepared for the potential that additional floodgates may be needed. Please check this page frequently for updates.

Lake Travis has stabilized between 704.32 (this morning) and a low of 704.11 at 7 PM. The trend today was slightly down, but it’s been largely stuck at 704 all day. That’s 23 feet above full pool. Yesterday (Fri 10/19) we added .96 feet and Thursday (10/18) we added 3.16 feet.

No significant lake rise today on Lake Travis. We started the day at 704.32 and are currently 704.31. It’s been up and down the 704 range today, but holding steady. Still no significant drop. Upstream flows continue to decrease across the board (all rivers). Mansfield is still operating 4 four floodgates 24 hours a day.

LCRA
Based on current conditions, LCRA does NOT anticipate that additional floodgates will need to be opened at Mansfield Dam today. However, this is a dynamic situation and conditions could change. Based on current conditions, LCRA now projects that Lake Travis will rise within a range of 704 to 706 feet above mean level today and Sunday. Those projections could change if additional rain falls in the lower Colorado River basin.

There are currently four floodgates open at Mansfield Dam, which forms Lake Travis. LCRA is making controlled releases from the flood pool of Lake Travis to manage river levels downstream of Mansfield Dam. Weather forecasts call for additional rain over the next several days, which could cause a significant increase in storm runoff, which may result in the need to open or close floodgates in the coming days.

One floodgate is open at Buchanan Dam. Flood releases from Lake Buchanan are being gradually reduced as inflows to Lake Buchanan have declined. Based on current conditions, LCRA projects that Lake Buchanan will gradually rise within a range of 1,018 to 1,020 feet msl today and Sunday. Forecasts for Lake Buchanan and gate operations at Buchanan Dam may change with additional rainfall.

After the lake level rise slowed to a crawl at about 2:00 PM, we actually saw our first draw down between 4:15 PM and 4:30 PM from 704.25 to 704.24. It’s not much but it’s the first lower mark we’ve seen in this now 4 day event. That said, as we write, it just started pouring again outside our office in Lakeway.

LCRA is unlikely to open additional floodgates on Mansfield Dam today as Lake Travis slowly climbs toward the 4th highest crest on record. This may spare Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin from significant flooding. Currently, homes from Graveyard Point to Cypress Creek Cove are under many feet of water on Lake Travis as inflows continue. LCRA is monitoring additional rainfall should that necessitate releases tonight or tomorrow, but only scattered light rain is in our forecast during that time. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7 p.m. today. Following a dreary, damp Saturday, breaks of sunshine briefly return for Formula One races at COTA on Sunday afternoon. Another heavy rain threat appears to materialize next week.

Lake Travis topped 704′ at 10:20AM this morning. Rainfall for the past 24 hours has been .33″ in Lakeway. Rainfall upriver has been between .35″ (Marble Falls) and as high as .75″ (Oatmeal area), so the rain hasn’t stopped. Upriver inflows are all down from yesterday, but still high on the Colorado (24,733 cubic feet per second) and Llano (9,321 cfs).

Lake Travis just hit 703 at 10 PM tonite (full is 681). As of 10 PM the lakes risen 2.87 feet today. The lake currently holds 1,623,005 acre/feet. Full is 1,134,956 acre/feet. So we have an excess 488,049 acre/feet. That water can cover 1,623,006 acres of land (The King and Briscoe Ranches) in 1 foot of water. Forecast says light rain and drizzle thru Sat.

Lake Travis is expected to rise to 705 to 710 feet msl by Friday, Oct. 19. Current projections show LCRA likely will need to open up to four additional floodgates by mid-day Thursday – for a total of up to eight gates open at the dam. This would be a record number of floodgates open at Mansfield Dam.

Here are some quick facts:
The highest Lake Travis has ever been was 710.44 in the December 1991 flood. The lakes been over 700 five different times. The 2nd highest ever being 707.38 in May of 1957. We appear to be at the 6th highest level ever (698.03 current). In ’57 the lake stayed over 681 for 4 months – 2 months over 700. If we hit 705 we’ll be 3rd highest and obviously if we reach 710 we’ll be flirting with the 1991 record.

Oct 17 2018 12:45PM
AUSTIN (KXAN) — The LCRA is now projecting that Lake Travis may rise to between 705-710 ft. elevation by Friday, approaching the all-time record crest of 710.4 ft. from Christmas, 1991. Water is still pouring into Lake Travis from upstream dams, flooding homes in Graveyard Point. If the lake continues rising at this rate, a top 5 all-time lake crest is possible today. Travis is already at its highest level in 11 years, and the 6th highest on record. A devastating and life-threatening flood developed on the Llano River and Lake LBJ yesterday, sending a massive flood down Lake Marble Falls and into Lake Travis. Between 8-12 inches of rain fell Sunday through Tuesday over a large part of the Hill Country, with as much as 6 inches falling early Tuesday morning. Many lakeside homes were flooded yesterday with significant property loss, as boats, docks, and personal watercraft were among a massive amount of flood debris washing downriver. The FM 2900 bridge in Kingsland was destroyed by flood waters. Lakes LBJ and Marble Falls have now returned to normal operating levels, but flows remain high and dangerous.

We’re at 697.67 at noon today and still rising about 3 inches per hour. Lake Travis is expected to rise to 705 to 710 feet msl by Friday, Oct. 19. Four gates are still open at Mansfield. Marinas mostly remain closed mainly because they have to keep moving with the rising waters. Those folks are working HARD for the past 36 hours. Kudos !

Kingsland Water customers are being told to boil their water before consumption (including brushing teeth and washing hands), due to Llano River flooding and low system pressures.

“To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes,” Kingsland Water Supply Corp. said.
