Lake Travis Cleanup

UPDATE 08/20/21— After analyzing relevant and available data regarding COVID-19 in Travis County, the decision was made to postpone the 27th Annual Lake Travis Clean-up to Sunday, April 24, 2022. Texas, like much of the United States, has seen COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths climb sharply in recent weeks due to the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus.

Volunteer registration for the Lake Travis Cleanup will open in February 2022.

Please check back here and follow Colorado River Alliance on Facebook for the latest updates.

Colorado River Alliance and Travis County Parks are excited to announce the 27th annual Lake Travis Cleanup will take place Sunday, September 19th, 2021!

Please check back soon for the full list of Diver, Waterway, and Park Volunteer opportunities.

The annual Lake Travis Cleanup is a community-wide event that rids Lake Travis of tons of debris and waste. The Lake Travis Cleanup is the BIGGEST scuba diving, shoreline, and watercraft cleanup in Texas.

Each year, local dive, shoreline, and watercraft volunteers gather to collect an average of 5 tons of trash from the bottom of Lake Travis and many Travis County Parks around the lake, while also helping to raise public awareness of the importance of Lake Travis and the Highland Lakes.  The Lake Travis Cleanup is a great event for ALL ages! Rain or shine!

Finley through the Years!

Sr. Deputy Jessica L. Hollis


Jessica was swept away while checking a low water crossing in her patrol car on September 18, 2014. She loved the Lake Travis Cleanup and 2014 was her second year participating. We will miss her very much.  Jessica is pictured above with Travis County Sherrif’s Office Lake Patrol Dive Captain Jose Escribano.
