PLDA News Release
Due to the recent heavy rains in the Guadalupe Basin, Canyon Lake is currently 5.89ft above pool.  The Army Corps of Engineers will be releasing up to 5000cfs out of Canyon Dam.  This release with the additional run off could cause minor flooding along the Guadalupe River.  The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels.

PLDA members need to be advised of floating debris in Lake Dunlap and use extreme caution when boating during the heavy releases. Lake Dunlap could see as much as 7000cfs coming through our lake so make sure everything is secured on the lake especially our members on the upper part of Lake Dunlap due to the fast moving water.

With the forecast of additional rain next week, the flappers on the dam will remain down why GBRA spills upper basin water and may still be down for Memorial Day Weekend. So we ask that everyone use extreme caution and safe boating next weekend.
