Previously, GBRA announced repairs at TP-4 dam/Lake Placid would initiate prior to Sept. 1, 2017 and require lowering the lake level by about 1 foot. However, due to impacts related to Hurricane Harvey, the repair schedule has been delayed. As a result, the levels of Lake Placid will be at normal elevations through the Labor Day weekend. The contractor will be able to resume these important maintenance activities next week, so GBRA will be lowering Lake Placid starting the evening of Monday, Sept. 4, 2017.

GBRA Communications and Education staff disseminates press releases to local media and posts accordingly on the press release page of GBRA’s website: www.gbra.org.  Information also is shared on GBRA’s social media accounts through Twitter “@GBRATX,” Instagram “@GBRATX” and Facebook at “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.
