In cooperation with local authorities, media and lake management groups, GBRA has developed materials to provide local residents, including those along Lakes Dunlap, McQueeney, Placid and Meadow, with valuable information during a flood event.
The Interim Flood Preparedness Plan explains what happens in the event of local flooding, and includes maps, definitions and rainfall patterns. The Plan can be downloaded using the link above, or is available by contacting GBRA at 830-379-5822.
In the event of a flood watch or warning, GBRA will provide information to KWED Radio about current river flows and their effect on GBRA hydro lakes, from New Braunfels to Seguin. Lake residents and others who may be affected by local flooding should refer to the appropriate Flood Tracking Chart for their area.
These charts, which can be downloaded above or obtained from GBRA, allow the user to graphically relate the current flood flows at Lakes Dunlap, McQueeney, Placid and Meadow to historic and comparable conditions, lake levels, track current events and plan for an evacuation, if necessary.
We encourage you to listen to KWED 1580 AM at these times for the latest flood reports and evacuation plans.
If you have specific questions or need additional information about how to use these charts, please contact Darel Ball or Tommy Hill at GBRA at 830-379-5822.
