Population & Water Demands

Based on the 2000 census, the population for Region H is approximately 4,848,948.  Approximately 65 percent (3,170,496) of this population resides in 98 cities and towns with populations of over 500 people, 16 of these cities have populations in excess of 25,000.  The population for Region H is projected to more than double by the year 2060.

Water demands are expected to grow along with the population.  However, demands for some types of water usage, such as irrigation, are projected to decline slightly as areas become more urbanized and give way to higher municipal demands.

Additional information regarding population and water demand projections can be found in Chapter 2 of the 2006 Region H Regional Water Plan.
