Lake Granbury Flood Ops Frequently Asked Questions
- Worried about the low lake level at Lake Granbury? Don’t worry. BRA hydrologists normally pull down the lake level at Lake Granbury when a large release is being made from Possum Kingdom Lake and flowing downstream toward Lake Granbury. Lake Granbury will refill and will be full when the rain events end and flood gates are closed.
- Worried about debris in the lake? Good, you should be worried here. It’s normal for debris to be swept downstream during large rain events and it’s been raining for quite a while now. If you go out on the lake at this time, you are taking a chance at serious damage to your watercraft and potentially your person. Debris is not always floating on top of the water. Waterlogged wood can be hovering just under the surface.
- Concerned about debris gathering near your seawall or dock? Wait. When the wind changes the debris is usually moved away from your property and continues its trek downstream.
- Debris gathered in your canal? Same answer as above; however, many homeowners associations will work with owners to move debris that is clogging canals. The BRA will remove large pieces of debris such as tree trunks or items that are a hazard to navigation. You may call our office if you spot a navigational hazard, and our lake rangers will be dispatched to investigate.
