Gov. Abbott letter | Lt Gov. Patrick letter

DO YOU DESIRE TO SEE LAKE CONROE’S LAKE LEVEL DECREASED BY 3 FEET?

No? Send in your two (2) letters….and read on.

WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?

As you may have read in our previous LCA President’s Update dated December 12, 2017, the Houston Chronicle on December 8, 2017, or the Conroe Courier on December 10, 2017, an initiative by the Lake Houston Area has commenced related to flooding incurred during Hurricane Harvey. Devastation incurred in the Lake Houston Area is being blamed, in part, on water releases from the Lake Conroe dam during that storm event.  In an effort to draw attention to the issue, this Lake Houston Area group initiated a letter-writing campaign to Governor Abbott and thirteen (13) elected officials in Austin.  Governor Abbott’s Office has estimated that they have received “thousands of letters” to date.  To represent what we believe is in the best interests of the Lake Conroe Area, we are asking you to join us in writing Governor Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick by completing the attached sample letters.

WHO IS THE “LAKE HOUSTON AREA”?

A program named “Recover Lake Houston” and “PleaFor3LakeHouston” is being coordinated by, among others, the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce and the Lake Houston Economic Development Partnership. For specifics on this program, you may go to www.lakehouston.org/recoverlakehouston.

WHAT DO THEY WANT?

“PleaFor3” relates to three (3) specific requests termed Reduction, Remediation and Representation. “Reduction” relates to reducing Lake Conroe’s lake level by three (3) feet as a means of downstream flood control.  “Remediation” references the removal of slit and debris from Lake Houston and the San Jacinto River (between Lake Conroe and Lake Houston) to improve water flow.  “Representation” refers to placing a representative from the Lake Houston Area on the Board of the San Jacinto River Authority.  The two (2) attached sample letters further explain these three (3) “R’s”.

HAVE YOU MAILED YOUR LETTERS YET?

PLEASE PARTICIPATE and mail these letters.  Thank you.

Mike Bleier, President

Lake Conroe Association
