I was out fishing today and was thinking maybe a solution to the next drought would be if the TPWD would place inflatable rubber trees in the lakes. When the water levels drop just inflate the rubber trees and the volume of air would displace the water and raise the water lever. The added benefit would it would give the fish a place to hide. and hang out. Just brainstorming.

Surprising I've seen someone pose this same question before. Surprisingly, I don't think it ended well

Thousands of air mattresses secured to the bottom would help also.

Simple, just hook each bag to a hose and manifold system. Inflate as the levels drop to maintain a steady lake level.

We should truck in icebergs and let them melt.

Instead of raising the water level maybe we could lower the surrounding land... dig some vent holes in the shores and let enough air out of the surrounding hills to lower the land to water level...

Congrats! Life is good.

Someone on here proposed large air bladders being sunk into lakes struggling with water levels about a year ago. It didn't go well.

Not a bad idea if the over burden was put into the lake it would raise the level. I think the cost of fuel and labor may make that idea unpractical.
