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.

2011 Water Plan

The Region F Regional Water Planning Group is tasked with developing and adopting a regional water plan in accordance with Texas Senate Bill 1 and Texas Senate Bill 2.  The 2011 Region F Water Plan was approved by the Texas Water Development Board on December 16, 2010 and is now available on the website.
