Temporary Closure of Comal River Due to Heavy Rains; Limited Guadalupe River Recreation

Heavy rains have caused an increased flow of water in the Comal River, with the current river flow (as of this release) measuring approximately 720cfs, with poor water clarity and minor amounts of debris along the riverbanks and at the Tube Chute dam. Therefore, effective immediately by order of the Chief of Police, access to the Comal River in New Braunfels for recreation is temporarily closed.

Additionally, the heavy rains have also caused an increased flow of the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, with the current river flow (as of this release) measuring approximately 1050cfs. By City ordinance, once river flows on the Guadalupe River rise above 1000cfs, tubing is not allowed and only rafts and kayaks are allowed on the portion of the river within the New Braunfels city limits. 

City officials will reevaluate river conditions on Tuesday, January 23rd to determine when river recreation can resume. It should be noted that forecasters with the National Weather Service are predicting additional thunderstorm possibilities. Those ongoing 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.
