FROM STAFF REPORTS
INKS LAKE — The Lower Colorado River Authority is reminding contractors and shoreline residents to remove any maintenance equipment from the bed of Inks Lake before it starts refilling the lake Feb. 10.
The refill will end a six-week, 8-foot drawdown, which started in early January, to allow for repairs and maintenance to docks, retaining walls, and other shoreline structures.
As crews begin the refill process, the lake will rise about 2 feet per day beginning Saturday.
As the water rises, so does the potential for dredging or maintenance equipment as well as tools and construction materials to become trapped in the lake bed.
Officials say the waterway will be back to normal operating range by Feb. 13.
