Urban and Regional Sciences students
perform Lake Conroe economic survey


Students in Texas A&M’s Ph.D. program in Urban and Regional Sciences are conducting a study to project the potential economic effects on the Lake Conroe area when some of the lake’s water is used to supplement the region’s water supply beginning in 2016.

In the Feb. 1, 2011 issue of the Courier of Montgomery County, Howard Roden reported that students will conduct a 16-month survey, funded by the Lake Conroe Communications Network, to forecast the effect on property values, sales tax revenue and employment after the San Jacinto River Authority begins pumping water.

George Rogers, coordinator of the Ph.D. program, was at a town hall meeting hosted by LCCN Jan. 31 attended by more than 300 people who were looking for more information about the study.

“Rogers told the audience that the economic study will include surveys that provide ‘real behavioral data,’” wrote Roden.

Randomly selected study participants will be asked to fill out an online survey that will take 10-15 minutes to complete.
