Since GBRA is the general contractor, it may be years before work is started. They are too busy designing a new office building right now.

According to a KENS 5 news report back in October the cost for the repairs will be between 15 and 35 million dollars. A vote was to be taken on November 3 to approve the plan for the repairs. According to a GBRA story back in December, a loan was secured for 40 million dollars to repair the Dunlap Dam with construction to begin February 1, 2021. The repairs were to be completed in August of 2023. I do not know if the repairs have started. eeks

That 40 million loan is to be repaid by the property owners with a tax. The property owners on Dunlap sold out all the other lakes. There isn't enough property value to do the same to the other lakes.

GBRA tried to get the Gonzales Commissioners to pitch a county wide tax to fix Lake Wood dam. That didn't get on the table.

I was told by some pretty good sources that the Lake Wood Dam will never be repaired. taz

Whoever said that was correct. Issue now is to remove the dam before it becomes a hazard.
