That is what I figured, they would be releasing to ease that and god forbid any more rain that we have coming our way. On a positive note, some of the grass carp might get flushed into LB and ruin it as well.Buch has a wall of water headed its way from the stream reports. Depending on how much they let out it should fill.
Oh Hell, they were too busy lengthening all the boat ramps that were out of the water to do Gate Maintenance. Didn't you notice?My ??? WTF were you doing when the lake was so low for so long. I guess they could not do the work then because there thumb was up the ass.
According to the fine folks managing Lcra and lake Buchanan they want to keep it a 1018 temporarily while they are doing work. That is short for screw you people we are sending water down to the rice farmers just because we can. I guess they need a lot of it right about now.

Very good question, since the regs only apply to LA, I'd say they are fair game.I wonder if the grass carp that wash into LBL are still protected or do they become trash fish at that point? And some will certainly get into the Colorado downstream, would they not?
Technically yes iit took 8 yrs start to finish, However work on the damn was suspended for 3-4 yrs due financing and funding. So actual construction time was 4-5 yrs.As for being full. It depends on the time of year. Buch has two full marks. 1018 or 1020 depending on the time of year. Summer season starts May 1 and it is considered full at 1018. So it is technically 2' low at this moment but will be considered full at its current level come May 1. Also it took 8 years plus to complete the dam.
