Some General background information on the Lake Conroe Dam and the SJRA.

Lake Conroe Dam and Lake Conroe are located on the West Fork San Jacinto River (San Jacinto River Basin) in Montgomery County, seven miles northwest of Conroe, Texas (Figure 1). Lake Conroe inundates parts of Montgomery and Walker Counties. Lake Conroe is primarily a water supply reservoir and Conroe Dam and Lake Conroe are operated by the San Jacinto River Authority. The San Jacinto River Authority was created by the Texas Legislature in 1937 to be an official agency of the State of Texas for the purpose of developing, conserving, and protecting the water resources of the San Jacinto River Basin (SJRA, 2011). The San Jacinto River Authority provides water to municipal and industrial users within the watershed of the San Jacinto River and its tributaries, outside of Harris County. The watershed spans all of Montgomery County and parts of Walker, Waller, San Jacinto, Grimes, and Liberty Counties. The San Jacinto River Authority is also responsible for managing water quality, treating wastewater, and water and soil conservation (SJRA, 2011).

We need an update this legislative action as many things have changed sine 1937 including our climate, business and river basin locations. 

You can also go online and share your input prior to the public hearing for the SJRA at https://www.sunset.texas.gov/input-form and select the San Jacinto River Authority as the agency you would like to provide input about as a board as  they are up for sunset review for the 2019-2021 cycle
