Residents living on the shores off Lake Austin, Marble Falls lake, Inks Lake and Lake LBJ are used to cleaning off their docks when the water level is lowered.
But that won't happen this year.
The Lower Colorado River Authority says there hasn't been enough rain this year. That means hydrilla will continue to be a problem in some areas.
In some parts of the lake growth is so out of control that it hinders the flow of water into Lake Austin. The lakes could be lowered sometime in the near future but there's no timetable for that.
"We do have a wet forecast for this fall," said Ryan Rowney, Water Operations manager at LCRA. "There could be some relief in sight, we hope. But until that happens, folks can just hang on for a year or so and maybe there will be an opportunity next year."
Just a few weeks ago the city of Austin together with the LCRA, released 5,000 hydrilla-eating Asian Carp into Lake Austin trying to control the problem.
The LCRA by itself spent more than $30,000 on these Arkansas raised sterile fish. But hungry carp alone aren't the cure so they're asking people to be patient until next year, maybe there'll be be substantial rain by then.
