They could clean the water all year and it would still be brown/tan. The main reason for the color is the soil (silt/clay), and lack of depth. You have to get way down into Mexico or Florida to have clear blue water at the coast. Or you can take a boat a few miles out into the Gulf for deep/dark blue water.

Oakbrook is one of the older neighborhoods in Clear Lake but still fairly nice, well maintained and safe. Convenient to most everything. Many of the homes in there have been remodeled inside and kept to current styles.

This. Although, I must quibble... even the water in Florida or Mexico isn't blue. It's clear, which reflects the sky on a sunny, blue-sky day.

In cooperation with the municipality or other authorities...

Any cleaning vessel ?

If the Texan spirit of solidarity prevails,one day these lakes will be truly clear...
