Question:

Say the influx of baddies is in Luce Bayou. How clean would the West Fork stay? Or because the fish move around so much it wouldn't matter, they'd all have it?

Just read the project report again. Beginning June 2019, an additional 500 million gallons of water will be pushed into Lake Houston daily. We already suck around 38 million gallons per day from the lake for the city to process. Expansion on the Northeast water plant is underway but a few years from completion. When completed, the 38 million will increase significantly.....at least you better hope so because 500 million gallons per day extra will cause a big rise in the lake level. I personally would rather fish the lake when the water level is low but that will be a thing of the past.

Well isn't that going to cause a lot of high water now? Even the San Jax will flood when gates open in Livingston.
Let's just flood out everyone like liberty

There will be lift pumps north of Capers Ridge, which is north of Kenefick, to pump river water into the canal. Turn the pump switches on/off to control flow.

Sounds like the water lever should rise? But the LH dam is designed to handle water only 8' over its top (according to the dam authority during the '94 flood) so, they can't raise it too high. If they raise the water level 2', most of the docks on LH will be under water. I know mine will. It would be over most bulkheads too causing erosion from the yards behind the bulkheads.
I would think they understand that and would keep the level constant where it should be and only release water to keep it so. But.... We are dealing with politicians...

Okden what seems to be common sense to use flies so far over those decision makers heads it's unreal... I'd doubt they'd care anything about boat ramps nor docks......LOL

I really don't like Conroe.....

-----------------------------------------

I've been looking around at other possibilities other than Lake Conroe to take my Kayak. Lewis Creek Reservoir is near Willis, and is used by the Entergy power plant. It used to be closed to the public, but is open now. From the reviews I read, there is great Crappie, Bass, and Catfish fishing. Y'all may already know about it. If so, I'd like some feedback. Here's a link to the information I found. Tight Lines everyone. :D

Common guys do you really think that they will release polluted water into lake Houston making the fish uneatable for people, or bad where people can not swim or any kind of water sports. Get real they will never intentionally let that happen, it will be a controlled deal. :mrgreen:

Keep believing that. i didn't see any kind of treatment plant in the plans.

that is a lot of water to treat . Duckweed and water hyacinths will fill the upper end of the lake.

say thank you to Dallas for flushing their toilets. https://stateimpact.npr.org/texas/2011/ ... -drinking/

The water coming from the Trinity will be raw water. There is no treatment process allowed for that flow. That is not and never was part of the plan. Whether or not this water pollutes the lake will be up to what each individual who uses the lake perceives. The studies done show that the enhancements in progress to the Northeast Water Purification Plant will allow for purification of the increase in turbidity, etc. in the lake water.

I would think once the raw water hits the lake and gets into the silt

the fish you eat from there will be contaminated . They may treat the water leaving
the lake .
