Region F Project Overview

The Region F water planning region includes 32 counties in western Texas. The largest cities in the region are Midland, Odessa and San Angelo. Most of Region F lies in the Upper Colorado River Basin and the Pecos River Basin. While surface water provides much of the municipal supplies, groundwater provides the majority of the water to the region and includes four major aquifers and seven minor aquifers.
