Property Owners Drainage Responsibility
DR Horton is developing the area east of Lake Creek Forest for residential housing. Google satellite imagery shows the first neighborhood roads being developed. Click HERE to see the imagery. You will see the streets in the middle of the screen and Lake Creek Forest to the left (with 45 Lake Dr. highlighted).
We have had some pretty good downpours in the neighborhood lately including a night time gulley washer of just shy of 9” that resulted in waterlogged lots and at least one flooded home. It came to our attention that the flooding may be aggravated by drainage ditches that have become clogged over the years. So whose responsibility is it to keep these clear and the water running smoothly?
We wrote to Commissioner Doyle (our Precinct 2 Commissioner) to find out the true skivvy. It seems that the county is responsible for the drainage ditches along the road rights-of-way but property owners are responsible for all drainage ditches on private property. The letters are linked below but these are the crucial points:
- Drainage on our road right-of-way ditches is maintained by the county. If you see a drainage ditch problem on the public right-of-way you should contact the Precinct 2 office (936-539-7383).
- There is no flood control district in Montgomery County to maintain drainage on private property.
- It is up to private property owners to maintain drainage easements on their property. Property owners should clear excessive brush or trees in a drainage easement on their property and NEVER dump any debris into the channel.
The Property Owners Association has no authority to enter private property to maintain or inspect drainage easements on private property.
Dead Tree Removal
WCA is now offering recycling services in our neighborhood. For existing customers the cost is $3.25 per month (plus 7.75% sales tax) in addition to your regular charges. For new customers the monthly fee including recycling is $32.75 (plus 7.75% sales tax).
WCA recycles almost all recycling types including glass. All recycling should must be clean so no soiled pizza boxes or unrinsed yogurt pots! Do not recycle plastic bags; they clog the machinery. Click HERE for the recycling types.

WCA also provides bulk pickup on any pickup day of up to 2 bulk items. You should contact the office to schedule a pickup to ensure a truck will be scheduled for the area.

POA Election Results
Many residents have responded to the need to remove dead trees from their property. Before the next storm residents need to assure dead and weakened trees are removed from their property, especially when the trees are near homes, structures, paths or rights of way.
If you do not have a tree contractor you might want to contact New Image Trees. New Image has removed the trees on the common land for the Association and the prices appear fair and the work satisfactory. You can contact the Adolfo Fiqueroa by calling or texting him at 713-545-8514.
