Comal River reopens for recreational use

KTSA NEWS/KATY BARBER — Visitors float the Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas, on May 27, 2021.

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — As temperatures climb back into the low 90’s, some good news from New Braunfels Police.

The department says the Comal River has reopened for recreation.

The river was closed for several days after heavy rainfall created dangerous conditions for swimmers and tubers.

The swift water flow and debris that washed up on the riverbanks created several hazards.

But the river is flowing at a safer pace and while much of the debris has been cleared up, people heading to the river are advised that there is still a lot of debris under water.

The NBPD encourages the use of life vests while participating in any water-related activity.
