The San Jacinto River Authority had opted not to release water from the lake in advance of Harvey, because it could have caused flooding even before the storm hit, spokeswoman Rhonda Trow said.
Tropical Storm Harvey may have weakened when it comes to wind, but the rain and storm surge issues continue.
Louis Uccellini, director of the National Weather Service, said some areas of southeast Texas around Houston have already seen more than 30 inches of rain.
A fire official says 11 people were rescued from fast-moving floodwaters in northwest Houston after a private rescue boat capsized.
When the Harris County Flood Control District told local media about the plan on Sunday, HCFCD meterologist Jeff Lindner said some flooding may still occur in the subdivisions closest to the reservoirs because more water is going into them from rain than is flowing out into Buffalo Bayou.
As for the immediate forecast for Houston, we have a 100 percent chance of rain through Tuesday.
A major dam outside Houston has begun spilling over as Storm Harvey pushes the reservoir past capacity, a Texas official says.
One of two key reservoirs that protect downtown and the Houston Ship Channel, Addicks is at a historic high.
Officials said the water levels in the Barker and Addicks reservoirs had increased dramatically - water levels were increasing at a rate of more than 6 inches per hour, Corps spokesman Jay Townsend said. It is hard to see how they could accommodate President Trump, who plans to visit Texas on Tuesday.

It could creep as far east as MS by Thursday, meaning New Orleans, where Hurricane Katrina unleashed its full wrath in 2005, is in Harvey's path. Foreboding images of Harvey lit up weather radar screens early Tuesday, the 12th anniversary of the day Katrina made landfall in Plaquemines Parish.
Today, the disaster is still very much ongoing, slowly - too slowly.
A mandatory evacuation was ordered for the low-lying Houston suburb of Dickinson, home to 20,000, and questions swirled in Houston itself about why the mayor did not issue a similar evacuation order.
More than three days after Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, the storm's center is back out over the Gulf of Mexico, south of Galveston.
The Addicks Dam is still releasing the maximum planned amount of almost 4,000 cubic feet per second downstream, the Corps of Engineers said. But the sheer amount of rain from Harvey has overwhelmed both structures. It later slowed back down to 3 miles per hour.
The storm was expected to make a slow turn to the northeast on Tuesday, placing the center just off the middle and upper Texas Gulf coast through Tuesday night before moving inland. Flooding may become worse in some areas, officials said.
Crews overwhelmed by thousands of rescue calls during one of the heaviest downpours in USA history have had little time to search for other potential victims.
