Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, May, 19, 2017, Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority hydroelectric crews will lower Lake Nolte (Meadow Lake) approximately 8 inches while contractors make assessments in preparation for bid submissions. 

GBRA officials advise anyone using the lake for recreational purposes during the scheduled lowering to exercise caution. Lower lake levels may expose debris and other potential hazards that normally are underwater.

Hydroelectric crews plan to return Lake Nolte to its current operating level by 12:01 a.m. Saturday, May 20.  Plans to lower the lake may be adjusted or canceled in the event of adverse weather conditions or other factors.

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
