LCRA’s Lake LBJ Draw Down Scheduled for January

As you may know LCRA will draw down Lake LBJ about 4 feet starting January 2, 2017 for six weeks. LCRA is doing this as a service to customers and waterfront homeowners as an opportunity to repair docks & retaining walls, as well as to dredge, remove debris and perform other maintenance work.

According to LCRA:

A permit is not needed for dock repairs, but all work must comply with the Safety Standards for Residential Docks on the Highland Lakes.

Residents and property owners wanting to perform dredging, remove debris or work on existing retaining walls during the Lake LBJ draw-down may do so under LCRA’s lake-wide permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, providing the work meets the requirements of the permit. This fact sheet has information on activities allowed under the lake-wide permit. Anyone wanting to conduct work under the permit must register with LCRA.

Clean Channel Dredging will not be operating on Lake LBJ during the draw down period as we already have work scheduled at other locations. If you plan to use excavation equipment at your waterfront, be extremely careful. Surfaces that appear to be dry can have a water table just a few inches below.
Good luck with your draw-down opportunity.

Let us know if we can provide any information or assistance prior to or following the draw-down.
