Downstream Notification Call System
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.
Select one or more options to receive a notification. Notifications can be via text, email, and phone call.
Please include me in the Brazos River Authority's (BRA) DOWNSTREAM NOTIFICATION CALL SYSTEM.
I understand that the purpose of the DOWNSTREAM NOTIFICATION CALL SYSTEM is to notify me by phone, email and/or
text regarding the opening of floodgates.
I understand that the DOWNSTREAM NOTIFICATION CALL SYSTEM is not a flood warning system and that it is my
responsibility to act in response to any conditions that could result from floodgate operations, including
taking steps to protect persons and property.
I understand I will not receive a notice for regular gate operations at Lake Granbury (less than 5,000 cfs)
and Lake Limestone (less than 2,000 cfs) or for releases made from the controlled outlet conduit at Possum Kingdom
Lake (less than 2,500 cfs). I also
will not receive notice for gate testing and maintenance at Lakes Granbury
I will receive notice of gate testing performed at Possum Kingdom Lake.
I understand that cell phone reception can be unreliable while enjoying recreation on the river and agree it
is my responsibility to monitor local news and social media, National Weather Service broadcasts, and/or other
information sources to keep myself and my family aware of potentially hazardous conditions.
I understand the BRA will attempt to notify me one time only at each release level as indicated below at Lakes Granbury and Limestone, and for all gate release increases at Possum Kingdom Lake, as increases are made.
I also understand that, depending on conditions and levels chosen, I could receive multiple notices throughout the day or night.
Additional information regarding changes in release rates may be found on this website
here and on the BRA Facebook and Twitter pages.
I AGREE TO HOLD BRA, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND SUCCESSORS HARMLESS FOR ANY INJURY, DEATH AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE THAT I,
OR ANY PERSON ON THE PREMISES OF MY PROPERTY OR ON THE RIVER AT MY INVITATION, MAY SUFFER DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE DOWNSTREAM
NOTIFICATION CALL SYSTEM TO PROVIDE NOTIFICATION TO THE ABOVE TELEPHONE NUMBER(S) AND/OR E-MAIL ADDRESSES.
I agree to notify BRA in writing or via e-mail to email@example.com of any changes in address or telephone number(s).
I understand it may take up to thirty days for BRA to enter my initial or updated information into the DOWNSTREAM NOTIFICATION CALL SYSTEM.
I understand I may choose the levels for notification from Lakes Granbury and Limestone.
I understand that if I request notifications for releases from Possum Kingdom Lake,
I will receive notifications for all gate release increases.
The term of this agreement will begin when this application is submitted. BRA may terminate this service at any time by
providing thirty (30) days written notice to the address contained on this application.
