1st Annual Lake Travis Underwater Cleanup

The Lake Travis Underwater Cleanup begins with just a few dive shops and recreational divers seeking to turn their passion into environmental stewardship; ensuring their passion for diving will last for years to come. Little did they know, their efforts would turn in to the largest underwater and lake shore line cleanup in Texas. With the thought of improving the underwater view, divers approached the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) and the Friends of the Colorado River Foundation in 1995 to solicit their support for a cleanup of underwater areas at Lake Travis. In that first year, 300 volunteers collected 120 large bags of trash and 900 pounds of scrap metal.
