SEGUIN, TX — Beginning, Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, Lake McQueeney will be lowered approximately 12 to 18 inches so that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) hydroelectric crews can perform inspections of the dam following the flood event of Oct. 31, 2013.

Crews anticipate the inspections may take about a week to conduct.  The lake level will be raised to its normal operating level at that time pending the results of the inspection.

GBRA staff advises anyone using the lake for recreation purposes during this time to exercise caution, because lower lake levels may expose debris and other potential hazards that are normally underwater. In addition, recent rain events produced higher flows that may have contributed to an increase of debris in the hydro lakes.

Repair operations also may be adjusted or canceled in the event of adverse weather conditions. Notices may be disseminated as press releases to local media and lake associations as well as posted on the press release and lake management pages of GBRA’s website: www.gbra.org. Information also may be posted on Twitter with “@GBRATX” and Facebook on the page “GBRA of Texas.” 

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.
