A water supply reservoir for now and for the future of our region.
Located at the Lake Conroe Dam, the Lake Conroe Division’s primary functions include: agricultural, municipal and industrial raw water supply, reservoir operations, water quality and source water protection, invasive species management, navigational safety, and regulation of structures and commercial operations on the reservoir. Lake Conroe was constructed through a joint venture between by SJRA and the City of Houston beginning in 1969 and completed in 1973 to serve as a backup water supply reservoir for the City of Houston, which owns two-thirds of the water rights in the reservoir.
Operations and Maintenance
The Lake Conroe Division’s primary function is the operations and maintenance of the Lake Conroe Dam, reservoir, and spillway structures for the purpose of safely passing storm events through the reservoir while maintaining the structural integrity of the Dam.
