Nobody's Waterproof, an award-winning safety campaign, aims to keep boaters and swimmers safe on the Highland Lakes. This is a joint effort between the Lower Colorado River Authority and Texas Parks and Wildlife that began in 2006. We encourage everyone to think about what they can do to prevent themselves and others from drowning.
More than half of fatal and nonfatal drowning among those 15 years and older occurred in natural water settings including lakes, rivers and oceans, states the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And, nearly 80 percent of people who die from drowning are male.
Before enjoying the Highland Lakes or one of LCRA's parks for boating, swimming or fishing, be sure to check the weather, lake levels and public boat ramp information. And, remember, play it safe. Nobody's waterproof.
Ava Glass, 7, attended Aqua Boom on July 4 at Lake LBJ with her parents. The Nobody’s Waterproof team talked about swimming and boating safety with Ava. She came up with a clever way to spread the word about wearing a life jacket. She put a Nobody’s Waterproof temporary tattoo across her forehead.
