South-central Texas has abundant opportunities for water-related recreation. The lakes and rivers in this area — including Lake Travis and Lake Austin — are hubs for boating and water sports of all kinds.

Unfortunately, the fun can quickly turn into a nightmare when an accident occurs. Hundreds of boating accidents happen across the state every year, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Approximately half of those accidents involve alcohol.
