Plans are being made to build a reservoir on the navasota river, called millican reservoir, with the damsite at Hwy 30. Water will backup midway into
leon co. Region H Planning group will hold a public hearing at the Madisonville Convention center 4/1/10 at 6:30pm. Are the leon co folks for or against this project? Water is for Ft Bend co. It will be a flood control project.

The first concern is that Region H wants to make the site a Unique Reservoir Site, and according to the farm bureau it puts a cloud on your title. Region H is asking the legislature to officially designate the land to prevent any development in the area.
Second, Ft Bend County needs the water and will be funding the project.
You are correct, that Millican has been on the books for a long time along with many other sites. But once it gets officially designed, it is all downhill for there on.
The gulf coast water authority and the brazas river authority will jointly develp this project.

this meeting is thur on millican and bedias reservoirs proposals. these always have low turnout and get pushed thru without any oppossition. they want to make millican a unique site just like bedias is. we can't stop bedias, so we need focus on millican.

leon and madison co reps already voted on the plan months ago. Thur is only a comment period, the plan won't change -- millican developed now and bedias in 10 years or less. bedias to remain protected unique and millican to become protected unique. if the local reps want it, how can we stop it. there should have been more input before they voted on the plan, now it is too late

I'm against this! Where can we find which land owners will be affected? I'm concerned for all, but our home is also very near this proposed "lake".

Bedias reservoir was made a management strategy on 2000 with region H, a obscure public notice was buried in the back of the eagle. No notice in the local madisonville meteor or navasota examniner. in 2001 the Trinity river author voted to call Bedias a new project, with immediate demand, out 16 potential TRA sites, Bedias was the only one within region H that was called a new project. When a little opposition mounted in 05, region H said donít worry, it is only a back up plan, then out of the blue in 07 Bedias became a unique reservoir site with no region H notice or press release. In 08 the TWDB did a study of 220 texas potential sites, Bedias ranks 3, millican 22. In 2010 Bedias is called a viable alternative Strategy, where it can be implemented at region Hís desire to meet any shortage. Region H does a poor job with public input and participation, just look now at millican, surprise, we are meeting in tonight in madisonville

That's all fine and good for those with nothing to do. But I have a family, a horse farm, and a full time job in BCS. I can't make it to Madisonville this short notice! I want a map with the proposed lake OVER current established and used county roads. There is a fairly large and establishing high dollar neighborhood at Hwy 30 and CR 175....a stone's throw from the river. I would be EXTREMELY ANGRY to know I just took out a mortgage for millions and then have my property flooded. More information needs to be sent out electronically!

just attended the meeting, you did,t miss much. voting reps from leon and madison co gave no comments and brought no maps. a presentation was made and was really short. they took comments and it was over. they took questions, but pleaded the 5th on much of them.

contact region h as they are about to make our properties a unique reservoir site, or unsellable, like they did with bedias reservoir. they been on hold for 5 years waiting

carin, for now forget about the building of the reservoir and focus on UNIQUE RESERVOIR SITE. get all the info you can on what this can do to hurt your property values. it puts a cloud on your title once the legislature acts on it. if you plan on never ever selling your property, don't worry. but if you need to sell, you never get full value. this unique thing is just a big black eye on your property.

more -- get with your local region H planning group rep and ask him to remove the unique status. the rep can ask for an ammendment to take unique out of the plan. they got to have it unique to build it. even if the unique status is temperary, it does its job by notifying the public this may be a reservoir someday. millican is like bedias, they just want notify the public in a official way thru the legislature. once you been officially notified they done their job

What everyone needs to realize is the fact that not only is it going to be the 71,000 acres taken for the lake, but a 1/2 mile buffer around the lake, just like bedias reservoir in Madison County. So just because your house won't be flooded, it might still be taken. The worse part is, it could take 20 years for them to take your property. Meanwhile, you cannot do anything with your property such as selling it or making improvements since one day it will be flooded or taken in the buffer zone. Not to mention the lost property and school taxes. Go to google earth and if the property is north of the dam and under 270 ft. MSL, it will be flooded. That puts alot of tax paying houses under water. You would think Brazos County would fight this as well as BISD.

what about the lost taxes for madison county and n zulch isd for millican .

and bedias reservoir, who what a impact to the ISD and property taxes.

this 1/2 mile buffer is the smallest amount, will be way more in the back of the reservoirs, 5 miles plus. no septic will be allowed within one mile of the reservoirs. better look closer at the fine print

Ok, how do I tell if I'm under 270ft MSL? Sorry, just don't understand.
