Heavy Rains Prompt Temporary Closure of Comal River

Heavy rains have caused an increased flow of water in the Comal River, with the current river flow (as of this release) measuring approximately 450cfs with poor water clarity and water flowing over the Tube Chute Dam.

Therefore, by order of the New Braunfels Chief of Police, the Comal River in New Braunfels is temporarily closed for recreation.  

It should be noted that forecasters with the National Weather Service are predicting more thunderstorms (some possibly severe) over the next several days and those ongoing weather factors will play a role in future decisions made by city officials.  River flows and debris conditions at the Tube Chute will be reevaluated periodically over the next several days in order to make a determination about when river recreation can resume.
