SEGUIN----The level of Lake Wood (H-5) will continue to be lowered approximately 18 to 24 inches below normal so that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) hydroelectric crews can perform routine maintenance to the dam.

GBRA officials are advising that these scheduled operations may be completed before January 14 or may need to be extended for an additional period of time. Operations also may be adjusted or canceled in the event of high flows or adverse weather conditions. GBRA officials advise anyone using Lake Wood 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 Wood 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.
