The beginnings of a 12-acre, man-made lagoon stretch out across land near Interstate 45, a testament to the large aspirations of the developers behind the Lago Mar subdivision, west of the highway near the Holland Road exit.

Just curious - where will this 23 million gallons of water come from? Is this lagoon designed to be fed from the natural bayous and creeks in the area, or from our dwindling fresh water supplies? Will it be a natural catchment area for rainwater? What will be the effect of covering 12 acres with a "liner" that I assume is water impermeable on storm drainage? It would be great to hear that all of this has been thoughtfully worked out and this lagoon is a net positive in our local ecosystem, not just a money magnet for developers.

Bailey> Asking GCDN readers isn't going to answer your questions. Ask the developers.They have answered all those questions already.

I'm actually asking the reporter who spoke to the developers and presumably asked them all these questions already.

In the grand scheme of things, 23 million gallons isn’t very much.
