Lake Travis almost full for first time since 2010


Lake Travis is almost 100 percent full for the first time since 2010.

LAKE TRAVIS — Lake Travis is almost 100 percent full for the first time since 2010.

KVUE”s meteorologist Jared Plushnick said Lake Travis is 98 percent full. Currently, the lake is sitting as 679 feet.

“There’s more work on the lake, on boats, there’s more people coming out, more people buying boats,” Pilotto said.

Boat rental companies have opened their business for the season a month sooner to cater to high demand.

“We are breaking up earlier and heavier than we have in six or seven years,” an employee said.

The atmosphere among neighbors changed as well. As the lake became more full, neighbors became more social/

“We have lots of get-togethers, anniversaries, birthday parties, that’s what’s going on now,” Pilotto said.

What better way to spend the summertime than surrounded by friends at the lake.
