WELCOME TO THE BRAZOS RIVER AUTHORITY

POTENTIAL FLOOD GATE RELEASES BELOW POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE     
Those planning to canoe or tube the Brazos River below Possum Kingdom Lake must be aware that with current weather conditions, there is the possibility that flood gate releases of water into the Brazos River may become necessary.  Should a release take place, water levels in the river will rise quickly, providing a potentially dangerous and life-threatening situation.  Before putting into the river in a canoe, kayak or tube, please plan to take all precautions necessary to insure your safety with proper equipment and through access to information on changing river conditions.  Flood gate releases are posted regularly on this page and on the BRA Facebook page. 


BOATER SAFETY CLASS ADDED TO BRA SCHEDULE

The Brazos River Authority has added an additional Boater Safety Class to the summer, 2015 calendar. Scheduled for July 24 at Lake Limestone, the Boater Safety Course provides one additional opportunity to receive the boater certification required by state law for some and recommended for all adult operators.

DONíT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS THIS BOATING SEASON
You probably wouldnít pick up a hitchhiker and bring them home to your neighborhood. Would you consider picking up hitchhikers at the lake that could create havoc on your drinking water and cost you a great deal of money? Probably not; but, most people donít know they could be doing just that. You can help stop the spread of these invasive mollusks simply by cleaning your boat before venturing into a new area.
