Safety is our top priority

As you prepare to head out on the water, the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority reminds you to exercise caution when enjoying the Guadalupe Valley Lakes this summer. The hydroelectric dams that form the Guadalupe Valley Lakes have surpassed their useful life and can pose a life-threatening risk to anyone within the prohibited and restricted unsafe zones.

Please review the maps below before going out on and around the water. Prohibited unsafe zones upstream and downstream of the dams and spillgates, marked in red, are unsafe for all activities on or in the water including boating, canoeing, jet skiing, swimming, wading, tubing, etc. Restricted unsafe zones, marked in yellow, are unsafe for all in water activities including swimming, tubing, and wading.

The safety of our community remains our top priority. Signage and buoys have been added on and around the water to clearly mark these prohibited and restricted areas. Please adhere to all posted guidelines and safety measures and report any violations of these guidelines to local authorities.

Who Do I Contact?

GBRA continues to work closely with the community to mitigate the impact of this decision by meeting regularly with the lake associations and is committed to remaining engaged and responsive. If you have a lake association, we encourage you to get involved with them as they are the best point of contact and source of information to ask questions and provide input about your specific lake.
