The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) increased flows from Canyon Reservoir to 104 cubic feet per second (cfs) through Oct. 17.

As of 12:31 p.m. the release rate was 57 cfs according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. GBRA’s website shows the current flow rate at 110 cfs.

“Property owners, recreationalists and other stakeholders should take notice of the changing river flows,” GBRA said on Facebook.

GBRA Public Relations/Communications Manager Lindsey Campbell said increased releases began at 2 p.m. Monday.

GBRA controls flow rates once the lake is under 909 feet, or “conservation pool.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers assumes responsibility for release rates when the lake is above 909 feet.

GBRA said further information is available on its website.
