Texas partial dam collapse captured on video

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Surveillance video captured a partial collapse of the old Dunlap dam near New Braunfels, Texas along the Guadalupe river.

The spillgate collapsed on Tuesday.

"The dam at Lake Dunlap was completed in 1928.

GBRA has been working with engineers to design replacement spillgates at all of the 6 hydroelectric dams in the Guadalupe River Basin.

Those plans are not yet complete.

We expect the cost to replace the spillgates at each of the 6 dams will cost tens of millions of dollars.

Funding is an issue," Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority Communications Manager Patty Gonzalez said.
