LCRA increases Dredge Zone D at Collier Materials Request
On March 23 2022 Collier sent a letter to Phil Wilson requesting a 3000 foot extension to Zone D further down the Llano river, and 8 days later Phil Wilson extended Zone D. Unfortunately due to a last minute change in the Highland Lakes Dredge and Fill Ordinance, giving LCRA General Manager sole authority to set zones, the public has no say in these dredge zones.
In the letter Collier Materials also stated their intent to remove the Kingsland Sandbar below Lookout Mountain and to be applying for both Zone D and C permits at the same time. Links to the letters obtained through an open records request from a supporter are attached below. There are also maps of all dredging zones in the files section so you can see if your home or favorite swimming spot is at risk. It is important to remember that this dredging project comes with a permanent industrial sand plant on the shores of Lake LBJ. It is up to the people to protect our Lake and our drinking water.
