LAKE HOUSTON SURVEY
Houston City Councilmember Dave Martin would like to make City of Houston residents living in the Kingwood and Lake Houston area aware that the City of Houston Public Works Department is conducting a Lake Houston Survey. Since March 2018, Lake Houston has been lowered six times in the advance of inclement weather at the request of Martin. Each time, it was lowered between 12 to 18 inches. Normal pool elevation for Lake Houston is 42.5 feet. In February the lake was lowered to 41.5 feet to conduct necessary repairs to the spillway dam and the lake remains close to that level today. Resident participation in the survey will determine if the city chooses to maintain the current lower water level of 41.5 feet temporarily during the 2019 rainy season or lower the lake an additional 6 inches to provide more storage in the lake during the wetter months of the year. The measures are strictly temporary for the rainy season only and this survey will assist in providing the city with valuable information before a decision is made. If a seasonal release is not favorable, the City of Houston plans to continue releasing water on a situational basis. No permanent lowering of Lake Houston is being considered. The Lake Houston Survey will be open until April 2 and may only be taken once. To fill out the survey, go to surveymonkey.com/r/lakehouston. The survey should take no longer than two minutes to complete.
