Lake Houston water level reduced ahead of storms

The daily pooling level of Lake Houston will be reduced 2.5 feet ahead of predicted storms on Wednesday.

The City of Houston says all gates at Lake Houston are open to reduce the levels from 42.5 feet to 40 feet. Lake Houston is expected to reach the desired level by Wednesday evening.

According to the city, once the lake is lowered to 40 feet the city plans to adjust the spillway gates to maintain a level of 40 feet on a long-term basis to address the concerns of the Lake Houston community, including Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita and Huffman.
