The Highland Lakes
The Lower Colorado River Authority was created in 1934 by the Texas Legislature as a conservation and reclamation district and operates on revenues from utility fees generated from supplying energy, water and community services. LCRA supplies low-cost electricity for Central Texas, manages water supplies and floods in the lower Colorado River basin, develops water and wastewater utilities, provides public parks, and supports community and economic development including managing the Highland Lakes. Low-cost utility services and ensuring the protection and constructive use of the area's natural resources are primary goals of the organization.
The Highland Lakes chain consists of 7 lakes starting at Lake Buchanan and culminating in Lady Bird Johnson Lake in Austin.
