By SARAH DUKE Staff writer Because of heavy rains this past weekend, Canyon Lake is above its normal level. U.S. Army Corps of Engineer officials warn that the level rn the lake might be dangerous for boaters. “There may be some things under the water like stumps and rocks that boaters can’t see because they are usually above the water," said Judy Scott, a ranger at the lake.

Boaters are allowed on the lake but are encouraged to use caution because of floating debris, she added. Scott said there are no currents in the lake. The only danger is hitting debris.

"I guess just about every park has at least a few tables that are underwater," she said. She added that the picnic areas will not be damaged because they are made of concrete and are designed to be underwater if necessary. Most of the picnic areas are close to water even when the lake is at its normal level. "As soon as the water drops, we’ll just clean them up arid they can lye used again," Scott said. The mannas around the lake and boats were not damaged. All the marinas are floating and rise as the water level of the lake rises. Scott said no buildings around the lake were flooded.
