Canyon Lake, Texas --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Canyon Lake has rescheduled gate replacement work that was planned for this year.
The gates are functioning as designed and priority in sequence of repairs has changed. Work on the control tower service bridge will precede gate replacement work. As a result of this change, USACE does not anticipate disruptions to river flow releases that would have resulted from the gate replacement work. USACE intends to change over low flow releases to the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority later this week.
“Inspections and major repair work are needed to ensure that Canyon Dam and its associated water control infrastructure are properly maintained and function as designed to meet mission requirements and manage downstream risks that ultimately protect life safety and property” said Canyon Lake Manager, Javier Pérez Ortiz.
Canyon Lake staff members encourage all visitors to practice leave-no-trace, use designated trash receptacles and always wear a life jacket while boating or anytime in or near the water.
