Latest Update from guadalupe-blanco river authority

GBRA continues to work with the lake associations to identify funding for the necessary replacement of the hydroelectric dams. Progress continues with Preserve Lake Dunlap Association and Friends of Lake McQueeney as they move toward the creation of water improvement districts.

GBRA and area property owners agreed to a temporary injunction in September 2019 prohibiting the drawdown of the four remaining lakes. The temporary injunction will remain in place, pending a trial in October 2020. Prioritizing the safety of those on and around the lakes, an Independent Expert Panel (IEP) completed a thorough assessment to define the areas of each lake that can become hazardous in the event of another spillgate failure. The prohibited and restricted areas have been marked by signage and buoys and are being monitored and enforced by law enforcement authorities. Activity restrictions in these areas will remain in effect indefinitely.
