Tom Miller Dam

Tom Miller Dam is one of several dams constructed by the City of Austin, Texas for the purpose of flood control and for generating hydroelectric power. Named for a former Mayor of Austin, the dam forms Lake Austin, one of the Texas Highland Lakes.

The dam is located at the site of the City's two previous dams, each of which were destroyed during major floods. It is currently leased to the Lower Colorado River Authority, who maintains and operates the dam.
