Access to Recreation on Comal River Reopens

Access to Recreation on Comal River Reopens

Effective immediately (05/14/23), access to the Comal River in New Braunfels for recreation is open. As of this release, the Comal River flow is at approximately 190cfs (cubic feet per second). Minor amounts of debris have been cleaned up by city staff and the clarity of the water on the Comal River is returning to normal. However, river-goers should still be cautious about debris that may not be visible under the water’s surface. And, as always, the use of life vests while participating in any water-related activity is highly encouraged. 

Additionally, recreation on the Guadalupe River inside the city limits of New Braunfels was not affected by recent rains and so access to the Guadalupe River remains open for recreation. 

It should be noted that forecasters with the National Weather Service are predicting additional thunderstorms over the next several days and those 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.
