No Flood Impact on Pier Structure
The dock structure that we will be using for our accessible fishing pier came through the two recent Austin floods with flying colors. Last week, the water levels in Lady Bird Lake rose 7 feet and obviously topped our pier with not only water but a lot of debris as well. There was absolutely no structural damage to the pier or the existing Boardwalk construction according to David Taylor, the project manager with the City of Austin. This bodes well for the construction timetable and the durability of the pier as this was an exceptional flood event.
