Lake Travis Level & Forecast

by LCRA

Lake Travis Level 9-27-17 1:45 pm 680.68

Lakes Travis and Buchanan remain well above their average monthly elevations, thanks to a wetter-than-average year in the Texas Hill Country. Lake levels rose in August, which typically is one of the driest months of the year in Central Texas. LCRA lake level projections show lake levels will remain above average this fall, even if conditions turn exceptionally dry.

The amount of water that has flowed into the Highland lakes this year is already more than what the lakes normally receive in an entire year. Inflows are the amount of water flowing into the lakes estimated from measurements at four gauges upstream.

Inflows into the Highland Lakes in August were 41,449 acre-feet, about 66 percent of the August historical average, and nearly three times the total of August inflows from 2011-2015.​ (An acre-foot is 325,851 gallons.)

Through August, inflows into the Highland Lakes this year total more than 1.35 million acre-feet, more than the yearly average of 1.21 million acre-feet.

Lake Travis Drought

by LCRA

The recent drought impacting Central Texas’ Highland Lake was the worst the region has experienced since the lakes were built in the 1930s, according to data from the Lower Colorado River Authority. Preliminary LCRA data shows the Highland Lakes are in a new “critical period,” drier than the 1947-57 drought previously considered the worst on record. The Highland Lakes include lakes Travis, Buchanan, Inks, LBJ and Austin. Lakes Travis and Buchanan serve as the primary water supply for the city of Austin and several other Central Texas cities.
