Ban extended, lakes closed
Tuesday, June 7, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
Though the weather outside has been a lot more Austin-typical these past few days, a waterway ban (which applies to Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake and the Colorado River below the Longhorn Dam) has nonetheless been extended through Wednesday at noon. At that time, Austin’s fire chief will re-evaluate conditions. In addition, the Lower Colorado River Authority closed Lake Travis to recreational boating at 8:30 p.m. last night. Inks, Marble Falls and LBJ lakes also remain closed.
