In the wake of opening the floodgates at both Tom Miller Dam and Mansfield Dam, Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake closures remain in effect.

As the Austin American-Statesman reported, Lake Austin is closed from Walsh Landing to Tom Miller Dam and Lady Bird Lake is closed from Tom Miller Dam to Red Bud Trail. There is no commercial boating or recreational use allowed in the banned areas.

Rhoda Mae Kerr, the Austin Fire Chief, stated that any watercraft in the flood ban area may be impounded. Dangerous currents and high waters have led to safety concerns in these specific areas and residents are asked to please abide by the ban.
