Good morning. My name is Erich Birch, attorney for the Lake Conroe Association. LCA petitions you to suspend the spring lowering of Lake Conroe under the seasonal lake lowering program and I will explain why this program is illegal and must stop. LCA has thoroughly researched each of these issues:
1. The lake lowering program is illegal.
2. The program does not prevent flooding.
3. The state is facing a drought.
4. In summary:
5. LCA cannot be more earnest or serious about this issue. It wishes to avoid legal action, and again urges SJRA to follow its ethical duties to protect the Lake Conroe reservoir, and stop the spring release of water.
