GBRA update

As we all know GBRA is doing repairs on the Lake McQueeney dam. Here is their latest update to FOLM…

Team FOLM:
I hope all is well. Attached is an updated schedule related to planned repairs for the hydro lakes, including Lake McQueeney. Rain and increased flows from Canyon and Comal Springs have restricted work for more than 2 months, delaying the estimated completion date at McQueeney until August.
This revised estimate does not account for additional delays due to weather or identification of additional components that may need repair. As mentioned before, until new spillgates can be installed on-going repairs and lowered lake-levels will become more frequent as we continue to attempt to preserve the system. – GBRA
