CANYON LAKE, Texas --
Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Canyon Lake announced today, it will close the dam service road for herbicide application beginning Aug. 23.
An agency contractor will spray the rip rap and the downstream embankment for woody plants and other unwanted vegetation. The dam service road is expected to be closed for three days to allow the contractor to stage equipment and apply herbicide.
“We understand large numbers of people use the dam service road as a place to exercise, walk, including pets enjoying a walk with their owners, take pictures, and enjoy being outdoors. For the safety of all visitors, we will be restricting access until the work is completed,” announced Canyon Lake manager, Javier Pérez Ortiz.
The Corps anticipates reopening the road on August 25th, when the contractor has moved all equipment off the downstream embankment and off the Dam Service Road.
“Herbicide application on Canyon Dam occurs twice a year, once in spring and once in late summer,” said Ortiz.
