Staff continue to test water + algae weekly. We’ve still only found blue-green algae in 2 spots on Lady Bird Lake + in Barton Creek near the pedestrian bridge. Keep pets out of these areas + avoid human contact. Avoid warm, stagnant water w/visible algae: .
The Fire Chief has issued a waterway ban thru noon 5/15 for (a) Lady Bird Lake from Red Bud Trail upstream to Tom Miller Dam and (b) Lake Austin from Oyster Landing downstream to Tom Miller Dam. Barton Creek and the Barton Creek greenbelt remain closed. More rain is forecast.
From @austinfiredept : The watercraft ban for Barton Creek and Lady Bird Lake will continue through noon tomorrow.
