LCA President’s Update 11-17-13

LCA President’s Update November 17, 2013

I could begin this LCA President’s Update in many ways, but recent rainfall and how much better our lake looks seems to be the conversation I hear most. How magnificent that Mother Nature finally decided to bless us with a substantial rain event while also not injuring people or damaging property in the process. We had a beautiful, steady rain that just had to bring a smile to your face. With Lake Conroe currently at a level of 198.89, or only 2.11 feet down from “normal pool”, we’re within reach of “normal pool” of 201.0 with one more steady rain. A brief summary of our rain event follows: Rainfall at dam site Lake Level at 9AM

————————– ————————

October 27 1.24 inches 197.26 feet

October 30 2.12 inches 197.5 feet

October 31 1.80 inches 198.4 feet

November 1 198.82 feet

November 2 198.98 feet

November 7 199.02 feet

November 21 198.89 feet

For those more skeptical of a rain event ever filling Lake Conroe, just remember that in the 29 days ended November 10, 2006, the lake rose from an elevation of 196.68 to 201.27 (or 4.59 feet)!

The last date on which water was released at the dam by SJRA was May 21, 2010.

2013 WAS A SLOW YEAR AT LCA: 2013 proved to be rather uneventful for the Lake Conroe Association (LCA). While we gathered information on lake-related, local topics of interest to keep informed, no singular issue demanded significant time or funding. The LCA Board held only six (6) Board Meetings during 2013 with limited agenda topics to discuss. We elected to avoid a Fund Raising Campaign for the 3rd consecutive year based on maintaining adequate cash balances, keeping our expenses to a bare minimum, and not identifying any projects requiring a large cash payment. A summary of 2013 topics follows.

AQUATIC PLANT MANAGEMENT: By far and away the single largest topic covered during my nine (9) years as LCA President has been the control of aquatic vegetation on Lake Conroe. We all remember the menacing Hydrilla Infestation from 2006 to 2008 which, at its height, covered over 2,050 surface acres (or 10% of the lake’s surface) and threatened to destroy all boating activity, lake enjoyment, and lake-related businesses. To a lesser but still significant level, Water Hyacinth and Giant Salvinia likewise threatened to choke out Lake Conroe’s waterways. Thanks to the combined efforts of the San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA), Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the LCA, sufficient personnel and financial resources were contributed to correct the problem. But the “THANKS” don’t stop there. Without the generosity of our LCA Members who contributed over $600,000 to the LCA for Aquatic Plant Management, we could have never succeeded in taking our lake back from the invasive plants.

TPWD has just completed its 2013 Lake Conroe Vegetation Survey and reports a very healthy Lake Conroe. As of October 31, 2013, TPWD reports the following: Hydrilla (Only a few scattered sprigs in very shallow water), Water Hyacinth (No mats but significant scattered plants especially in Caney Creek), Giant Salvinia (Almost none), and Native Vegetation (A few hundred acres of native emergent plants consisting of about a 4 foot wide band in 2 feet or less of water around the National Forest. This was before the recent rains. Considering what was on the shoreline, we probably have 500 acres or more of native emergent vegetation in the water now). Where nominal infestations have occurred during 2013, TPWD and SJRA have treated the areas with aquatic herbicides to control any outbreaks. No White Amur Grass Carp have been added to Lake Conroe since February, 2008 as the Hydrilla infestation has been reduced to small, juvenile patches in upper lake streams where treatment applications are difficult. Should you identify any of these invasive plants near your shoreline or while out boating, please report the location to Mark Webb of TPWD (mark.webb@tpwd.texas.gov), Jordan Austin of SJRA (jaustin@sjra.net) or the LCA (www.lakeconroeassociation.com). If you are able to include a photograph with your e-mail, it helps to make a more certain plant identification.

ZEBRA MUSSELS: Zebra Mussels are a small, destructive invasive species that can spread by hitching a ride on boats and trailers. They grow to about 1 ½ inches and develop a distinctive zebra-striped shell. One Zebra Mussel can produce up to one million microscopic larvae. They can cause tremendous environmental and economic damage such as: • Encrusting and adding weight to boat hulls; clogging water systems used in boat motors, air conditioners and heads • Threatening our water supply by colonizing inside pipelines, restricting the flow of water, and damaging water intake structures which results in higher water bills for homes and businesses • Taking over habitats from native species, damaging lake ecology and impacting fish populations

To date, Zebra Mussels have been identified in the following Texas waters: Lake Texoma, Belton Lake, Stillhouse Hollow, Leon River, Lampasas River, Lewisville Lake, Lake Ray Roberts, and Lake Lavon. The most current information on Zebra Mussels can be reviewed on TPWD’s website at www.texasinvasives.org/zebramussels.

TPWD’s campaign to fight the spread of Zebra Mussels includes a policy of CLEAN, DRY and DRAIN all surfaces to which a Zebra Mussel or its larvae could attach itself. This typically includes exterior watercraft hulls, motors, bilges, livewells, and bait buckets. A new prospect identified for transporting Zebra Mussel larvae is wakeboard ballast bladders.

It is ILLEGAL to transport Zebra Mussels – knowingly or unknowingly in the State of Texas. The law imposes a fine of up to $500 for the first incident (a Class C misdemeanor), and steeper fines with possible jail time, for subsequent offenses.

The LCA considered a campaign in 2013 to stencil warnings onto the actual concrete or paved launch surface at each public boat launch on Lake Conroe at a cost of $1,700 per location but, in the end, felt the monies were not an adequate deterrent compared to the $30,000+ pricetag. Further, we felt the spread of Zebra Mussels needed to be focused at the infestation sites – meaning those Texas lakes and rivers where Zebra Mussels had already been identified. TPWD has an active signage campaign at those infested locations to inform boaters of the danger and penalty of transporting Zebra Mussels, and has extended that signage campaign to include all Texas lakes. You will see this signage at most Lake Conroe public boat launches.

We have included a brief LCA flyer that hopes to draw attention to the Zebra Mussel problem. It should be noted that Zebra Mussels have not been identified “IN” Lake Conroe yet, but more than one vessel trying to be launched into Lake Conroe has been stopped prior to launching due to Marina self-inspections identifying a Zebra Mussel infestation on or in that vessel. Please do your part when launching a boat or jet ski into Lake Conroe that has visited another body of water…and inspect the vessel before launching anywhere. Be sure your friends and relatives are aware of the law and boat clean-up program before they launch in any public fresh waters. There are currently over 600 Zebra Mussel-infected lakes in the U.S.

LCA ANNUAL MEETING: The Annual Meeting of the LCA and its election of our Board of Directors occurs on Friday, January 17, 2014 at 11AM at the SJRA Meeting Room off Highway 105 on Dam Site road. We will be mailing proxies to our Members in approximately two (2) weeks for election of our 2014 Board. I am pleased to have worked with all six (6) LCA Directors who have volunteered their time for a minimum of nine (9) consecutive years now. If you run into one of them, please acknowledge the contributions of Ben Richardson (Palms Marina and EZ Boat Storage), Tom Butz (Bentwater), Jim Pohoski (Rancho Escondido), Rich Cutler (Shelter Bay), Gene Colbert (Bentwater) and Gene Barrington (Del Lago). For anyone interested, we always welcome individuals who would like to volunteer and join our LCA Board.

NO 2014 LCA FUND RAISING: As we do not anticipate an “event” in 2014 requiring significant cash, the LCA Board has decided that a LCA Fund Raising Campaign is NOT necessary at this time. Any individual or business currently considered “a Member” will have that designation extended through 2014. We are operating on the assumption that, if a significant event occurred that required further finances, a future letter requesting contributions would be favorably received. In the past, our Members have always generously risen to the occasion when a request was made. Of course, contributions made payable to the “Lake Conroe Association” are always accepted at Lake Conroe Association, P.O. Box 376, Willis, TX 77378. As a Section 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, your contributions to the LCA should be tax-deductible.

LCA PRESENTATION ON WATER AND LAKE LEVELS: I am currently editing a LCA presentation on local water geography, rainfall, lake levels and the future SJRA Water Treatment Facility. Ever since the 2010 Lone Star Groundwater Conservation District (LSGCD) announcement that aquifer use must be reduced by thirty percent (30%) from 2009 usage levels and SJRA’s announcement that a Water Treatment Facility would be constructed to utilize waters from Lake Conroe to meet the water demands of Montgomery County, people have expressed grave concerns over effects on Lake Conroe lake levels. As a lakefront property owner myself, I joined the list of those concerned and elected to become more involved in this topic. In 2013, I was fortunate enough to be appointed by Governor Perry to the Board of the San Jacinto River Authority and have become far more “educated” on this topic. I regularly hear repetitive questions from friends and LCA Members regarding water, in general, and thought it best to prepare some form of presentation on those frequently asked questions. With the help of the LCA Board and significant information contributions from SJRA Managers and staff, the LCA will be prepared to hold its first public presentation within two (2) months. The intent is to schedule meetings through sub-division POA’s or HOA’s. I’d imagine that the presentation will evolve as attendees ask questions and present suggestions. More information will follow soon.

SENATOR NICHOLS TO SPEAK: I have been asked by the Lake Conroe Community Network (LCCN) to pass along that they have engaged Senator Robert Nichols to speak at the Walden Yacht Club on December 4, 2013 at 6:30PM. Senator Nichols has been most instrumental in representing the needs of Montgomery County and eighteen (18) surrounding counties. He will speak on what was accomplished during the last Legislative Session and on the recently passed Propositions. We all desire to show Senator Nichols how much we value his service, and hope you will show your support by generating a large turnout for this event. For further information, please contact Bill Marshall at bncfarm@consolidated.net.

YES, I’M FINALLY DONE: Thanks so much for reading another long LCA President’s Update. Once I get started, it’s hard for me to stop writing as I’m very passionate about our Lake Conroe community and the whole of Montgomery County. Should you have questions or comments, you can communicate through the LCA website at www.lakeconroeassociation.com or my personal web address at parmgb@aol.com. Congratulations on being part of the best lake community in Texas!

Why Lake Conroe is full of monster fish

Array ( [post_title] => Why Lake Conroe is full of monster fish [post_content] =>

There are monsters lurking in Lake Conroe.

On March 20, biologists with Texas Parks and Wildlife caught a 42-inch blue catfish during a survey of the lake.

In 2016, the same team photographed a 52-inch beast that is likely still there, waiting for the right angler.

"The catfish fishery is phenomenal (on Lake Conroe)," said Mark Webb, district supervisor for TPWD's College Station-Houston Inland Fisheries Management District.

MORE BIG CATCHES: Best photos from South Texas Fishing Association

Webb said channel catfish, bottom feeders, are plentiful in the lake, but it's the blue catfish that are most likely to become monsters, because they feed on other fish, like shad.

"They get really big; they can easily go over 100 pounds," Webb said. "I think we'll just see more and more big ones as we go along."

Lake Conroe provides a perfect environment to grow giant catfish.

"The lake is just the right amount of richness, and it's absolutely full of forage fish," Webb said.

Fishing has also been good for crappie, large mouth bass and white bass this year.

Webb said large amount of rain in the Houston area has led to good spawn for those fish.

See some of the recent Lake Conroe catches documented by Webb's team and the TPWD Toyota Sharelunker Program in the photos above.

Array ( [post_title] => Why Lake Conroe is full of monster fish [post_content] =>

There are monsters lurking in Lake Conroe.

On March 20, biologists with Texas Parks and Wildlife caught a 42-inch blue catfish during a survey of the lake.

In 2016, the same team photographed a 52-inch beast that is likely still there, waiting for the right angler.

"The catfish fishery is phenomenal (on Lake Conroe)," said Mark Webb, district supervisor for TPWD's College Station-Houston Inland Fisheries Management District.

MORE BIG CATCHES: Best photos from South Texas Fishing Association

Webb said channel catfish, bottom feeders, are plentiful in the lake, but it's the blue catfish that are most likely to become monsters, because they feed on other fish, like shad.

"They get really big; they can easily go over 100 pounds," Webb said. "I think we'll just see more and more big ones as we go along."

Lake Conroe provides a perfect environment to grow giant catfish.

"The lake is just the right amount of richness, and it's absolutely full of forage fish," Webb said.

Fishing has also been good for crappie, large mouth bass and white bass this year.

Webb said large amount of rain in the Houston area has led to good spawn for those fish.

Conroe ISD: All gun threats are taken seriously, investigated

Array ( [post_title] => Conroe ISD: All gun threats are taken seriously, investigated [post_content] =>

A mother concerned over at least two recent alleged gun threats made by students is calling on the Conroe Independent School District to take action.

Heather Carrier, a mother with two children enrolled in Conroe ISD schools, addressed the district's board of trustees on March 20 demanding action in reference to two different rumors involving gun threats made by two separate children the week before spring break.

Carrier told the trustees she was terrified after hearing about an Irons Junior High School rumor regarding her oldest son's classmate threatening to bring a gun to school to "shoot people."

"I immediately got on the phone with the school the next morning in an attempt to verify what my 13-year-old had told me," Carrier told the board on March 20. "Initially, I was told that the school had only learned about the event that morning and in fact had detained the student. This was confusing because my son had heard it at school, the day before. It was later clarified to be two different instances with two different children only a few days apart."

Carrier said she did not begin to feel at ease until Jeff Fuller, the principal at Irons Junior High School, spoke with her for more than 30 minutes on a "personal level." But the conversation, she said, was only partially reassuring.

"Unfortunately, this has left me with even greater questions about continued security of not only my son's school but every school in this district," she said. "The children in question were searched on the days of the event and no gun was found. But what happens in the future, if they change their minds and decide to act on the threats. Is the staff going to search them every time in school until they graduate, until they are no longer a risk?"

RUMOR VERSUS REAL THREAT

Conroe ISD spokeswoman Sarah Blakelock responded to the two rumors Carrier told the trustees, both of which occurred at Irons Junior High School in early March. One student was arrested but no weapons were found in either case, Blakelock said.

In one instance, on March 7, a student used the social media app Snapchat to post a threat regarding an incident that occurred during lunchtime, Blakelock said, adding that rumors are always circulating but that the district investigates each one in order to separate between rumor and "real threats."

"First of all, if there is a real threat to campus safety, we are going to respond," Blakelock said, adding the district uses its police department to determine the impact of every rumor to a campus.

Blakelock said parents were notified via email and social media regarding the Snapchat incident.

Fuller sent a letter to parents about the incident.

"Campus administrators have identified the student and, in working with Conroe ISD Police, have determined the threat to be false and not viable," Fuller stated in the letter to parents on March 7. "There are no weapons. This matter, in addition to any other rumor or threat, are all investigated and addressed in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct."

The student was not arrested in the previous case. But just days before, another student was arrested after making a threat at the same school, Blakelock said, noting she was restricted from giving out too many details regarding the incidents due to student privacy laws.

Carrier said she was not aware of the two incidents at Irons Junior High School until she started making telephone calls to officials herself.

Blakelock said the district will notify parents if an unfounded rumor evolves into misinformation, where it could have a serious impact on a campus, or if it is a real threat.

"The Conroe ISD Police Department along with district and campus administrators take these situations very seriously and do everything possible to make sure students and staff are safe, including meeting with parents and making home visits," Blakelock said. "If there is determined to be any validity to any rumor or impact to the campus, parents are notified."

Just three days after Carrier addressed the board, another rumor about weapons on campus began to circulate at another school in the Conroe ISD. Just 2 miles down the road at Oak Ridge High School on March 23, the district police department began conducting classroom sweeps with K-9 units.

While the rumors at Oak Ridge High School ultimately turned out to be false and no weapons were found, according to the district, parents were in a frenzy to pull their children out of school. One parent confirmed to the Villager her son had texted her about the rumors, but later she received a district message stating the campus was safe.

Oak Ridge High School Principal Tommy Johnson denied the rumors and in an emailed letter to parents on March 23 assured them that classroom sweeps with district police K-9 units were random and not in response to any real threat. There were no weapons found during the screenings, he added.

'A LAYERED APPROACH TO CAMPUS SAFETY'

Datren L. Williams, vice president of the CISD Board of Trustees, who has three children of his own in the district, said he became aware of the Irons Junior High School gun threats on the day Carrier came to address the board.

"Please keep in mind that we have over 60 campuses and over 60,000 students in CISD," Williams said, adding that he believes the administration has done an exceptional job in addressing safety incidents. "I am not aware of all the facts of this particular incident, specifically who knew what, when and what actions took place as a result. I do trust that the school district takes the safety of every student as the utmost priority."

According to Blakelock, the Conroe ISD has spent millions of dollars on "a layered approach to campus safety including the installation of secure entrances and vestibules along with adding security cameras throughout our schools."

At the most recent Board of Trustees meeting-the same day Carrier addressed the board-members voted to approve a $3.7 million district-wide safety and security upgrades project, which included security barricades, new strobe lights and fire alarms, surveillance cameras, as well as thousands of dollars' worth of other improvements to existing security systems in schools.

Since 2010, the district has reported 43 incidents involving weapons brought to campuses, including intermediate, junior high and high schools, according to data from the Conroe ISD. These incidents, which are reported to the state, include firearm possession, illegal knife possessions and incidents involving other prohibited weapons, according to compiled campus incident reports from the district.

"The district is continuously working on safety measures to ensure the safety of our kids," Williams said. "These measures include increasing vestibule security, key pads, speakers at the entrances used prior to letting visitors in, increased police presence, more robust communication systems for our officers…etcetera."

ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING

Blakelock said officials on district campuses "regularly review safety procedures, and periodically conduct safety drills which include lockdown drills."

With the third largest police department in Montgomery County, the district "regularly provides active shooter training to our officers as well as other local law enforcement agencies to better prepare our law enforcement community for an integrated response," she said.

In an interview with Conroe ISD police Chief Bill Harness last year, Harness said his officers patrol all campuses within the district day and night and can handle student incidents, as well as civilian incidents, in the areas they patrol.

The district board late last year approved an application for a state grant for assistance in purchasing rifle-resistant body armor that would help keep police officers safe during an emergency, such as an active shooter on campus.

Carrier said that recent events such as the Parkland, Fla., shooting where a former student is accused of killing 17 people with an AR-15 assault rifle, have left her with a feeling of dread in spite of increased police presence.

"All I can say to that is those exact measures did not stop 17 people from being murdered in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14," she told the board. "How many of our children and teachers have to die before we start to implement more formidable security measures in our schools?"

It's a feeling of concern that Williams said he understands.

"The concern I share goes beyond school shootings. It is a concern that I am not physically there to protect my kids," Williams said. "No matter the level of security the school provides or the county sheriff's department provides for the community, I will always have a concern for my kids' safety when I am not there to protect them."

Conroe ISD Board President Melanie Bush said she believes the multi-layered security measures and having such a robust police force are key to protecting schools.

"As a parent, I am grateful for every person who reports any potential threat," Bush said. "I appreciate that our administration takes every issue very seriously and investigates it fully."

SJRA releasing water from Lake Conroe, but river flooding is ‘no reason to panic,’ officials say

Array ( [post_title] => SJRA releasing water from Lake Conroe, but river flooding is ‘no reason to panic,’ officials say [post_content] =>

Residents in Montgomery County are under a river flood warning as Peach Creek and the East Fork San Jacinto River are expected to rise over the next day.

Lake Creek just north of The Woodlands is also expected to flood, officials said.

All this comes as the San Jacinto River Authority is releasing water from Lake Conroe at around 3,200 cubic feet-per-second, according to the authority. Lake Conroe is currently a little more than 1 foot over its normal level.

LOWER LAKE CONROE? Commissioners consider opposition to lower Lake Conroe 3 feet

The river flood warnings come as storms are expected to roll through southeast Texas on Tuesday. Much of Montgomery County has received between two and four inches of rain since Thursday, with isolated areas having received five inches of rain over the same period.

Officials with the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management said Peach Creek near Splendora stands at 15.68 feet and is expected to crest at 16.8 feet tonight – which is considered moderate flooding. Likewise, the East Fork San Jacinto River is currently close to 58.2 feet and will rise to 59.7 feet by Wednesday.

Lake Creek will crest at a minor flood stage around 8 a.m. Tuesday, the office stated.

GOSLING BRIDGE: County officials finalizing agreement for bridge expansion

Downstream from Lake Conroe, the West Fork San Jacinto River near Humble crested at about 49.5 feet but will remain in an "action" flood stage through Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

Officials said the flooding is no cause for concern.

"Our area has experienced several flood events in the past few years, which may make some people nervous to hear that heavy rain is possible," the office stated in a press release. "There is no reason to panic."

TRAFFIC NIGHTMARE: Traffic delays predicted Saturday during The Woodlands Marathon

Tuesday's storms can cause flooding in low-lying areas, rural roads with poor drainage and underpasses. The office suggested resident have several ways to receive information about the weather and to always check road conditions before travelling.
