CONROE, TX -- San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) has reduced the release from Lake Conroe to 31,934 cubic feet per second (cfs). Lake level is currently 203.52 feet.

Storm water and runoff from severe storms in the northern counties drained into the lake and must be passed through the gates at Lake Conroe in accordance with operational practices while managing Lake Conroe to restore its pool level of 201 feet in a safe manner. More than 20 inches of rain has fallen north of Lake Conroe over the last 7 days.

Lake Conroe releases flow into the West Fork of the San Jacinto River. Inflows from the West Fork and East Fork flow into Lake Houston. There are more than 12 tributaries that contribute to the levels at Lake Houston. The latest reports from the National Weather Service and Harris County Flood Control District predict the peak at Lake Houston Saturday evening. SJRA strives to gradually reduce releases while also preserving the integrity and safety of the dam. Operations could change if another storm enters the watershed.

We will continue to monitor rain and runoff in the area throughout the day. We are in coordination with Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and Texas Department of Emergency Management.

Lake Conroe is currently closed.
