Travis Landing is a small neighborhood located on the southern shores of Lake Travis. Through many years this land on the winding Colorado River was the home of the *Comanche and other early native Americans. Completion of the Mansfield Dam in the 1940's created Lake Travis and Hudson Bend, named after Wiley Hudson, who built a ranch home in the area in the 1800's.
 
In 1943, Joe and Margaret Cocke purchased 56 acres which, in 1960, was subdivided as "Travis Landing." The Cocke Family established a lake residence in 1947. The Cocke Horse Farms held annual Hunter and Jumper shows from 1949 to 1951. Participants came from near and far to enjoy the shows as well as the beauty of Lake Travis.

Update by Lisa Benton at LCRA - 3/8/2021
Posted on Mar 8th, 2021
"At this time, we think that zebra mussels are a confounding factor in this situation; however, we do not have the science to definitely prove what all of the contributing factors are in Lake Travis.  Additional research needs to be done in order to really understand all that is at play with this issue.  The cyanotoxin we are dealing with is called dihydroanatoxin.  It is a known cyanotoxin, but is not as well researched as some of the others.  This is the same cyanotoxin that has been found in Lady Bird Lake in recent years.  I have attached a paper that came from research conducted in Germany.  The lake where this issue arose did not have zebra or quagga mussels in the system.  We are waiting on more LC/MS analysis of the algae in Lake Travis to confidently determine genetic composition of the algae along TL shoreline.  Every natural ecosystem is very dynamic and we are doing our absolute best to understand what is going on here. 
 
"What we do know:  Algae (and aquatic plants) feed off of nutrients; i.e., nitrogen and phosphorus.  We put this flyer together a few years ago with simple tips landowners can follow to help prevent excess nutrients coming off of their properties and going into the lakes.  We will be developing more outreach materials specific to this harmful algae issue as soon as we can.
 
"We were able to get results back from a more sophisticated water analysis testing that was capable of detecting dihydroanatoxin in the water itself.  There are low concentrations of the cyanotoxin in the water in Travis Landing, as we reported on Friday:  https://www.lcra.org/download/march-05-2021-hudsonbend/?wpdmdl=23500  But the concentrations in the algae itself are orders of magnitude higher.  We are continuing to get additional test results back and will keep you updated."
LCRA Press Release 2/26/2021
Posted on Feb 27th, 2021
"Late Friday, LCRA received test results on the solid organic material taken from the edge of Lake Travis near Travis Landing on the east side of Hudson Bend.  The results showed the sample of solid material, which included algae and decaying algae, contained cyanotoxin.
 
"Cyanotoxin is found in blue-green algae when it is producing toxins and can be fatal to dogs and other animals
 
"We strongly encourage dog owners not to let their pets play in the lake or near shorelines where algae has accumulated near Hudson Bend. We have had reports of one dog dying and five dogs getting sick after playing in that area of the lake. In addition, we have had a report from pet owners in the Comanche Point area, directly across the lake from Hudson Bend, who said their dog died after playing in the lake in late January.
 
"We have not had reports from other areas of Lake Travis, however, algae may be present and we encourage pet owners to use their own best judgment in deciding whether to let their dogs play in other parts of the lake. Do not let dogs play in or eat algae, and stay away from stagnant water or water that has decaying matter on it.
 
"LCRA expects to have additional test results back next week and will share those results as soon as we can."
