Lake Travis on the rise!

2006 saw a drought that had the Lake Travis water levels down to 40 year lows.  What a difference a few months can make!  We have had a lot of rain in Central Texas!  The Lakes are filling up and the hills are green.

As of May 10th, Lake Travis had an elevation of  672.69 which is .90 feet above the historic average for the month of May.  That is more than 25 feet higher than at the beginning of March!  This is great news for recreation on Lake Travis just in time for summer.

Here is a photo I took of Lake Travis today.  Looking good!
