NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – Recreational access to the Comal River in New Braunfels is officially back open after recent heavy rainfalls shuttered access to the river.
New Braunfels Police posted an update to the department’s Facebook page Monday morning stating that river access has reopened and the river flow is approximately 350 cubic feet per second.
According to the National Weather Service, that flow rate is average compared to the last month, which has also seen a high amount of rainfall.
Minor amounts of debris were cleared from the river and New Braunfels city staff told police the clarity of the water is returning to normal.
Police are still encouraging river-goers to be diligent and cautious about debris that might linger below the waters surface.
Several tubing outfitters in New Braunfels have posted to social media Monday morning stating that they will be open.
