The Highland Lakes System in Action
This is how it is supposed to work. The lower Colorado River basin has a history of major flooding. Â The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA)Â built the dams to manage floods and generate hydroelectric power in the 1930s and 1940s. Â Check out this excellent drone video that was shared showing the water flowing down stream out of Lake Buchanan. Â Lake Buchanan is aÂ fluctuating basin upstream from Lake LBJ that collects and releases water as needed downstream. Â Lake LBJ is considered a pass-through lake and is home to one of the LCRA’s major power plants and the water from the lake is used to keep it cool.
