In preparation for repair activities expected to affect the normal water levels at Lake McQueeney in the coming months, GBRA will lower Lake McQueeney up to 24 inches on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 for maintenance and inspection activities. The drawdown of the lake will commence overnight starting on Tuesday, April 10th, and expected to return to normal elevation by the morning of Thursday, April 12, 2018.

During this temporary lowering, GBRA will be working in partnership with Friends of Lake McQueeney (FOLM) to identify potential navigational hazards so appropriate markings and buoys can be deployed prior to the repair and construction activities scheduled for the dam over the coming months.

GBRA will provide additional notice related to the expected start and duration of construction activities at the dam, and at least 30-day notice before the earliest expected start date to provide property owners an opportunity to prepare their boats and property for the impacts from the lowered lake levels.

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.GBRA provides services that include hydroelectric generation; water and wastewater treatment; municipal, industrial, and agricultural raw water supply; and recreational operations.
