To sign up for the BRA's downstream notification, go here. The BRA offers a way to receive notifications of gate changes at each of its three reservoirs: Possum Kingdom Lake, Lake Granbury and Lake Limestone. Notifications can be via text, email, and/or phone call. The alerts – which have been in place since before Lake Limestone’s creation - are not meant to serve as a flood warning system and it remains every person’s responsibility to monitor local news outlets, National Weather Service broadcasts, and other information to remain fully aware of potentially hazardous conditions.

Texas’ weather can change in an instant and it's vital everyone is prepared when enjoying our waterway.
