SEGUIN, TX-The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority General Manager William "Bill" E. West has suspended certain restrictions imposed on Lake McQueeney effective noon Saturday, June 26. Officials are allowing the use of motorized boats to include towing of objects or individuals, and use of personal watercraft on Lake McQueeney from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, towing of inflatable objects and other water toys continue to be prohibited.

Restrictions imposed on other hydro lakes: Lake Dunlap, Lake Placid, Lake Nolte (Meadow Lake), Lake H-4 (Lake Gonzales), and Lake Wood (Lake H-5) REMAIN IN EFFECT. Individuals who would like to access the other hydro lakes to retrieve or secure personal property may continue to contact GBRA's Yolanda Pierce at to obtain a permit.

With proceeds from a fundraiser, the Friends of Lake McQueeney (FOLM) funded the Lake McQueeney restoration project and participated in the cleanup. In addition to FOLM, entities coordinating the inspection of the cleanup include staff with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority.

GBRA crews have inspected four of the six Hydro Lakes and are continuing to seek local support and NRCS funding for restoration of all the lakes.

The public may continue to check GBRA's website for press releases on changes in restrictions. GBRA officials will post notice via press release on the GBRA website when other watercraft and recreational activities may be allowed.

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.
