Water is a vital asset to our community. From the founding of Lake Conroe in 1973 to present day, we’re committed to bringing our community The Best Water in Texas. Lake Conroe’s capacity of over 100,000 acres of water provides a clean, safe water supply for our community 

Planning ahead for decades, and even centuries ahead, the San Jacinto River Authority team is equipped to take on large scale, complex, highly technical projects for our customers and the communities we serve. With our long history in water supply development and planning, our goal continues to be to provide timely and efficient solutions to the watershed’s current and future water challenges.

Whether it’s for work or play, planning for The Best Water in Texas has been happening in our community for over 75 years. The San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) serves the San Jacinto River watershed. We conserve and protect the water resources of the San Jacinto River Basin throughout all or part of seven Texas counties including Montgomery, Fort Bend, Waller, Grimes, Walker, San Jacinto, and Liberty. 

We have facilities in three main communities: Lake Conroe, The Woodlands, and Highlands. 

Our primary mission in the Conroe area:

  • Operations and maintenance of the Lake Conroe Dam
  • Preservation of Lake Conroe as a reliable water source
  • Long-term water supply planning
  • Licensing and permitting
  • Invasive aquatic plant management
  • Water quality initiatives

We undertake the following work in the area of The Woodlands:

  • Groundwater production and distribution
  • Water systems operations and management
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Outreach programs - educating youth

In the Highlands we undertake a raw water enterprise which covers: 

  • Water supply planning and development
  • Responsible for projects to develop new water supplies
  • Coordinate a water supply program
  • Water supply for petrochemical industry

Through the hard work and planning from the San Jacinto River Authority, The Best Water in Texas is now in over 250,000 households in our community, providing one of our most important resources to our community cleanly and safely.
