Protect Your Property

Although it can happen year-round there is typically an increase in burglaries and theft around the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season. In order to decrease your risk of being a target The New Braunfel's Police Department reminds homeowners to always do the following:

  •  Lock your home and vehicles (even when parked in your own drive way)
  •  If you have to leave items in your vehicle store them in your trunk
  •  Keep your garage door closed
  •  Keep items of value out of view or locked up, LOCK YOUR DOCK!!
  •  If possible, install security lights or a security system
  •  Report suspicious activity, vehicles, etc. to your local law enforcement agency.  

Beginning Monday Jan. 16, 2017, Lake Dunlap’s level will be lowered approximately 18 to 24 inches below normal so that Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) hydroelectric maintenance personnel can make repairs to the downstream and side seals of a spill gate. The needed repairs were identified during the most recent inspection. These repairs originally were to take place on Nov. 29, 2016, but were postponed due to weather conditions.

GBRA officials anticipate these scheduled operations may take at least 2 weeks to complete. Operations also may be adjusted or canceled in the event of adverse weather conditions. GBRA will post updates to its social media sites, “GBRA of Texas” on Facebook and “@GBRATX” on Twitter, #HydroLakes.

GBRA officials advise anyone using Lake Dunlap for recreational purposes during this time to exercise caution. Lower lake levels may expose debris and other potential hazards that normally are underwater.
