SEGUIN----Beginning Sunday, February 28, Lake McQueeney will be lowered approximately 12 to 18 inches below normal, so that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) hydroelectric crews can perform maintenance to the dam.

GBRA officials are advising that these operations may be completed before March 13, 2010. Operations may need to be extended for an additional period of time, or adjusted in the event of adverse weather conditions.

GBRA officials advise anyone using Lake McQueeney for recreational purposes during this time to exercise caution. Lower lake levels may expose debris and other potential hazards that are normally underwater. For questions about Lake McQueeney levels during maintenance, please call GBRA (830) 379-5822.

The GBRA was established by the Texas Legislature in 1933 as a water conservation and reclamation district. GBRA provides stewardship for the water resources in its 10-county statutory district, which begins near the headwaters of the Guadalupe and Blanco rivers, ends at San Antonio Bay, and includes Kendall, Comal, Hays, Caldwell, Guadalupe, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Calhoun, and Refugio counties.
