    Remember, GBRA was nearly sunsetted in 2018, particularly due to:

    “GBRA has not implemented a comprehensive asset management process to ensure timely repair and replacement of its significant utility assets, leading to failed infrastructure and potential service disruptions for its customers.”

    Seems like property owners around these lakes should have been more engaged. You just can't trust the government to take care of anything.

    I didn't see any dam failure. It looked like an energetic disassembly causing the contents to take up residency down stream.

    Kinda curious about the ownership of the land that used to be under the lake water.
    With the river eventually returning to its original riverbed all the land that had been underwater of the lake, that now will be dry, belongs to who?

    I wonder the same thing.

    Some attorney's will likely get rich if it's not clearly spelled out in Tx law.

    A friend has his Buda (AKA Austin suburb) home for sale for 1.6 million.
    His home on Lake Placid (AKA Guadalupe River) is nearly done.

    Upset is an understatement.
    I'll ask him, if I dare.
