The Coastal Water Authority had begun lowering Lake Houston levels on September 12th prior to the storm’s arrival. Both Lake Houston and Lake Conroe reservoirs had plenty of capacity in case of a heavy rainfall event as was originally predicted.
Lake Levels: Lake Conroe and Lake Houston
Lake Conroe began the week at more than a foot below conservation pool and was at a Lake Level of 199.6 ft as TS Nicholas tracked toward the coast (normal pool is 201 ft).
Forecasts did not show the need for additional releases from Lake Conroe.
Lake Houston was lowered well over one foot and was at a Lake Level of 41.18 ft. as TS Nicholas approached. Normal pool for Lake Houston is 42.4 ft.
