Don't make plans to go to Lake Alan Henry, just north of Snyder.

It's been shut down after a nearby oil leak.

Crews are still capturing crude oil from two pipelines that broke along the Brazos River that feeds into the lake.

Both pipelines have been plugged.

It's estimated about 165 barrels of crude oil leaked into the river.

Booms have been set up to keep it from flowing into Lake Alan Henry.
