Agency History

One of 10 major river authorities in Texas, the San Jacinto River Conservation and Reclamation District was created in 1937 by Special Acts of the Texas Legislature. In 1951, the agency's name was changed to the San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA). Its purpose is to develop, conserve, and protect water resources of the San Jacinto River Basin.

The SJRA is responsible for several activities, which include municipal and industrial water supply, water quality management, wastewater treatment, and water and soil conservation. The SJRA's general offices are located at Lake Conroe. The SJRA is overseen by a seven-member board, which typically meets monthly.

The SJRA boundaries include the entire watershed of the San Jacinto River and its tributaries excluding Harris County. This includes all of Montgomery County and parts of Walker, Waller, San Jacinto, Grimes, and Liberty Counties. SJRA serves many customers in the Houston area and is authorized to operate in East Harris County through an agreement with the City of Houston, which allows the SJRA to operate east of the San Jacinto River.
