About LCA

About our non-profit corporation

History of the Lake Conroe Association


The LCA is a 501c3 non-profit corporation formed in 1977 by a group of concerned property owners, business leaders, developers and local bankers with the goal of controlling and/or eliminating an ever increasing infestation of Hydrilla.

Since then, the LCA has worked tirelessly to improve Lake Conroe for residents and businesses surrounding Lake Conroe. This includes fighting for safe water levels, water conservation, resolving vegetation problems, and improving the overall quality of life around the lake.

Since 1977, the LCA, through private donations, has raised over $1,000,000 which has been spent primarily on White Amur (grass carp) and to purchase aquatic herbicides. We have also donated over $40,000 to remove 450 stumps from the main body of Lake Conroe, and $5,000 towards new equipment for the Montgomery County Constable Search & Dive Team

The LCA also works closely with the San Jacinto River Authority and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to represent people affected by Lake Conroe.
