In the July 2022 issue of Municipal Sewer and Water magazine, the article On the Green presents information of how the Clear Lake City Water Authority converted a golf course that was up for sale into a community stormwater management system with additions of community green space. The Authority used the existing water hazards for stormwater management while also adding additional water features to contain the stormwater while also providing natural habitats for wildlife and walking trails for the community. The facility is in the final stages of conversion, but has and will provide stormwater management benefits for the community.
