Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Tomorrow's the big day!

Recap for WW V
No firing from a moving vehicle.

A vehicle (from Latin: vehiculum[1]) is a mobile machine that transports passengers or cargo. Most often, vehicles are manufactured, such as bicycles, cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, trains, ships, boats and aircraft.[2]
Vehicles that do not travel on land include watercraft, aircraft and spacecraft.
I have received several emails from your friends and neighbors assuring me that they too will call the police if/when they see little Johnny or Jane behind the wheel. I would rather you not have to go pick up the fruit of your loins from the police station and pay to get your buggie out of the impound lot but that is up to you. It really won't bother me a bit. Your call. 

This from the Water Board. Pay attention!!
Subject: Voluntary Water Conservation is not working

All municipal and water district customers of the TM Water Treatment Plant,

A call for voluntary water conservation is not working. 

As stated last week by Gulf Coast Water Authority; there is no run of the river water in the Brazos, we are using our Brazos River Authority stored water – too fast. 

We have been asked to please review OUR water conservation and drought contingency plans AND please take positive action this week to “spread the word” among your customers.  

IF we do not see a drop in water consumption this week; it is likely we will be asked to move to Stage 3 of our Drought Contingency Plan – this should be no more than once a week lawn watering. 

The TARGET is to keep the flows below 35MGD – for now.  If drought persists, we need to be prepared to move to Stage 4 which should prohibit all outdoor water use. 

We will look at a move to ground water or combination of both –  just so long as surface water consumption continues to drop.

We will be placing the red “mandatory” signs out this week and ask that you work with us on the conservation of our water.  We will keep you updated on our progress and the next Stage.

Thank you for your help,
Galveston County WCID#12 – Your Water Department
