The U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s Fort Worth District is closely monitoring the government shutdown as it could affect their operations.
Officials said recreation facilities within the Southwestern Division will remain open over the weekend. However, because of the Federal Government shutdown, they will reevaluate the situation Monday morning.
Aquilla, Belton, Stillhouse Hollow, Waco, and Whitney Lake recreation areas are among those in the region that could be affected by the shutdown.
USACE said they will conduct an orderly shutdown of operations at their recreation facilities at the appropriate time, if necessary.
Employees can report to work, Monday Jan. 22 to execute an orderly shutdown of operations unless otherwise.
