UPDATE: Access to Recreation on Comal River Remains Closed – Guadalupe River Access Reopens

Due to the ongoing cleanup of debris from recent thunderstorms, access to the Comal River in New Braunfels remains closed.

As of this release, the Comal River flow is at approximately 400cfs and water clarity remains poor. City staff have been working throughout the day to clean up debris like tree branches, mud, rocks, and other items that washed downstream. River access to the Comal River will resume once crews have completed that cleanup.

Meanwhile, the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels is currently flowing at approximately 475cfs and access will resume effective immediately. However, anyone wishing to use the Guadalupe River for recreation should be aware that water clarity remains somewhat poor and they should remain cautious about debris that may not be visible under the water’s surface. As always, NBPD encourages the use of life vests while participating in any water-related activity. 

It should be noted that forecasters with the National Weather Service are predicting some additional rainfall over the next 24 hours and those weather factors will play a role in future decisions made by city officials. Please remember to TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN whenever you see water over a roadway and never drive around barricades.
