Has construction started on the dam?

I guess no one knows. GBRA hasn't made any announcements.

Does anyone even fish what is left of the lake?
Never hear any reports so I guess that's a secret as well!


Just one more cast!

I'm still convinced the whole thing of "fixing the dams" is nothing more than a scam by GBRA. When Lake Wood Dam failed, GBRA held a new conference at Lake Wood and said it would take about $3 million to repair it and they would start immediately. Well, that turned into 5 to 8 million after engineering, and now they say $28 MILLION to repair the dam.

A sheet of common plywood is $45 at Home Depot. A common 8ft 2x6 is $12.
Concrete has gone way up.

Before long a small house on a common 1/4 acre lot will cause a 1/2 million.

Prices are NOT going up. That is the illusion. The value of the dollar is going down.
Big inflation is going on.

Increase from $3,000,000 to $28,000,000? A $25,000,000 increase? That is almost 10 times what was said at their press conference. I don't think that is inflation, it's a scam.

Lake Wood is gone forever. GBRA wants Gonzales County to come up with $56 MILLION to repair Lake Wood and Lake Gonzales dams and then just turn it over to GBRA to own and not maintain till the next failure.

I really feel bad for the homeowners but you'd have to be dumb as a box of rocks to agree to that deal. That's one of those sweet "All of the Profits, None of the Obligations" type of deals.

Exactly. And that is what Lake Dunlap residents agreed to. And when they agreed to that idiot deal, they killed the rest of the lakes. There will be more dam failures and GBRA will simply say take the Dunlap deal or no lake.

Not to mention the Gonzales County tax payers picking up the bill so lakeside property owners can enjoy their waterfront property.
There is always another side to that coin!

Thankfully our county commissioners court tabled the proposal from GBRA with no discussion.

Just an FYI. I live on Dunlap and believe we volunteered dollars way too early but like Dunlap. I believe Lake Wood had a public boat ramp anyone could use so everyone in the county and beyond would and could benefit. GBRA is to blame for this entire mess for not maintaining the lakes and dams since 1963. GBRA is the state of Texas regardless of declaring themselves a "subdivision of the state of Texas". The General Manager of GBRA is appointed by the Governor. GBRA contributes to 5 non profits where many of GBRA managers sit on the boards of these non profits.

Dam construction has not started since the low bidder (by $2m) has filed suit against the second low bidder and GBRA. GBRA submitted a request for summary judgement last week so it is now in a judges hands. If this goes to court, it will take some time to get to the case due to the backlog from COVID. We will see.

FYI....that "public boat ramp" was a fee ramp. So we would have had to pay twice to use it.

The ramp at lake wood was at a GBRA park and you had to pay a fee to use the ramp! I think that was the only ramp for lake Wood also. As for Dunlap, I got a feeling that it will be awhile before the lake starts filling up again. I hope I am wrong! hmmm
