  Texas Highland Lakes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Texas Highland Lakes are a chain of man-made lakes formed by several dams on the Texas Colorado River, which winds Southeast from its headwaters near the border of Texas and New Mexico through Central Texas to the Gulf of Mexico.
The river, which had a history of major flooding, especially in the City of Austin, Texas, was "tamed" by the construction of the dams in the Texas Hill Country.
The City of Austin constructed Longhorn Dam and formed Town Lake in 1960 largely to help beautify the city and to form a cooling pond for its natural gas-burning power plant just north of the river.
