SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Guadalupe Blanco River Authority says it will be drawing down all of its lakes starting next month.
The district said engineers have determined a drawdown is the only viable option to minimize risks to aging dams.
The drawdown will begin September 16th.
The New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung says the lake to be drained will be Lake Gonzales — followed by Meadow Lake,Lake Placid and then Lake McQueeney.
The decision comes after a dam failure in May at Lake Dunlap.
