Effective Monday, Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and the Colorado River downstream of Longhorn Dam are closed to commercial or navigational boating and all recreational use. LCRA (Lower Colorado River Authority) will be commencing floodgate operations at the Tom Miller Dam as well as the Mansfield Dam. Officer John O'Donnell, Jr. of the Austin Police Department says, "The water is literally moving at 20 miles an hour, which it doesn't look that fast when you"re looking at it, but it does crazy things. it is very deceiving. It may look calm on the surface, but as soon as you enter the water it's going to immediately take your downstream."

One local resident has already lost her life while tubing on a local creek and being sucked into a bypass tunnel, and unfortunately, not making it out the other side. Please heed the warnings of the LCRA and Austin Fire Department Chief. It isn't worth losing your life.
