  1. Wonder if Howard Hughes Corporation will use the same engineer to handle the drainage in Woodlands Hills as they did in Timarron at Creekside West? If they do, folks get ready for some flooding issues. Or if the SJRA releases water from Lake Conroe make sure you aren’t downstream of the release. The developer THE WOODLANDS DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION will never let you know and never admit to drainage issues.
