SEGUIN----The level of  Meadow Lake will be one foot below normal through Sunday evening, May 13, then lowered to 18 inches below normal Monday, May 14, so that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) hydroelectric crews can continue to perform routine maintenance to the dam.

GBRA officials are advising that these scheduled operations may be completed before Friday, May 18, or may need to be extended for an additional period of time.

Operations also may be adjusted or canceled in the event of high flows or adverse weather conditions.

GBRA 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.

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.
