Water is vital to all of us. In Lakeway, we have had very little rain for the last two months. This week’s View of the Neighborhood is focused on our Water supply
Here is a photo that was taken in May of the kayak launch site on Lake Travis.
Here it was yesterday. Notice the water is twenty feet away.

A shot of the lake from yesterday. A lot of lawn. Lake Travis is the source of Lakeway’s water.
The Lakeway Municipal Utility District (LMUD for short)
The District office. LMUD is a nonprofit organization providing water to the Lakeway community. In 2009 LMUD won the best tasting water in Texas competition. LMUD also developed water reuse systems for irrigation of the golf courses, airpark, and city property.
In the fall of 1987, the first elevated storage tank was installed in Lakeway to enhance water pressure.. It had a golfball design reflecting the resort nature of the community. The ball was hand-painted by a crew suspended by ropes 487 feet above the ground.
The second elevated storage tank.
The latest tank put into service in 2019 to meet the increasing demands of a growing city.
We are all very conscious of the need to conserve water.
