SJRA update on Lake Conroe and expected rainfall

By  | 

CONROE, TX – June 18, 2018 4 p.m. – The San Jacinto River Authority reported that the Lake Conroe watershed has received less than a quarter inch of rain in the past 24 hours, and the lake level has remained fairly steady at approximately 200.6 feet above mean sea level, which is five inches below the lake’s normal full level.

The current forecast places Lake Conroe in an area expected to receive four to seven inches of rain over the next few days.  It is uncertain at this time whether the watershed will receive enough rainfall to require a release of water from the dam.




SJRA staff are continuing to coordinate on weather and operational updates with our partners in the region, including the National Weather Service, the City of Houston, the Coastal Water Authority, the Harris County Flood Control District, and emergency management personnel from Harris and Montgomery counties.
