After attending the HVBA meeting yesterday morning, we wanted to share this with our area family & friends.This was recently Posted on: May 31, 2015
US Army Corps of Engineers Closes Lewisville Lake
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District Acting Commander has closed Lewisville Lake to all boat traffic to ensure the public’s safety on or near the water. The closure is a result of inflows created by heavy rainfall in recent days and the resulting increase in lake elevation. Wakes created by boaters could potentially flood homes and damage property adjacent to the elevated shoreline. Additionally, debris and underwater obstructions create hazardous conditions so all persons around the lake are urged to stay aware of changing conditions. “We are fully aware that this closure will temporarily cease recreation in and around the lake, but it is necessary to ensure the public’s safety,” said Lt. Col. Clay Morgan, acting commander, Fort Worth District. For additional information about our lake operations, please call the Fort Worth District’s Public Affairs Office at 817-886-1306.
There was also mention of water quality safety. We would also like to mention…you may want to keep your precious 4 legged friends from swimming in the lake also-just saying, critters out there-water quality questions, stuff floating-who knows!
Have safe and great weekend!

Sewer Cleanout Cap
Due to the persistent rains and rising lake levels, the City of Highland Village is requesting residents bordering Lewisville Lake to assist us in identifying broken or missing sanitary sewer cleanout caps. We are experiencing very high flows into our sanitary sewer system, which is causing our lift stations to pump at capacity in some areas of the City. We are asking for your assistance, please check your cleanout location and verify that the cap is on or if it is visible, please replace the cap if it is off or broken. If your cleanout area is under water, check to see if you notice a vortex of water or persistent bubbling in its location. Call 972-317-2989 to report this situation or any other problem you notice with the City’s sewer system due to the high water.
