USACE to close parking area near Guadalupe Blanco River Hydropower Plant and South Access Road for 8 days

Published May 31, 2019

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at Canyon Lake will close the parking area between the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority (GBRA) Hydropower Plant and South Access Rd. from today through June 8 due to work activities needed to accomplish the routine inspection of the outlet works stilling basin.

Work activities include the placement of a temporary water-filled dam, stilling basin water pump out, fish recovery and relocation in the river below the temporary dam and inspection of the stilling basin.  The fish recovery and relocation will be accomplished in accordance with the Aquatic Resources Relocation Plan and permit approved by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Throughout the process, GBRA will make water releases through their Hydropower Plant as directed by USACE.  We understand the parking area closure may cause some inconvenience and we appreciate the patience of everyone impacted while USACE performs these necessary work activities to accomplish this routine inspection.
