ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) will hold a third and final public meeting on Thursday, September 10, 2020, at 6:00 p.m., via webinar/telephone conference, to discuss its ongoing Lake Conroe Reservoir Forecasting Tool project (the 'Project').

As the second phase of a multi-phased approach to address flood protection in the San Jacinto River Watershed, the Project will develop a tool with the capability of predicting peak release rates of stormwater from Lake Conroe and the anticipated peak water level in Lake Conroe during rainfall events based on weather forecasts, observed rainfall, lake levels, and other data. This will allow SJRA to improve communication with Offices of Emergency Management and the general public during rainfall events. The Project is anticipated to be completed by early spring 2021, and development of and recommendations for operation/use of the tool will be summarized in a written technical memorandum. The Project is being funded by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) and SJRA.
