Region 14 Upper Rio Grande Flood Planning Region
The Upper Rio Grande River tracks the US-Mexico border from El Paso to Val Verde County. By far the largest of the flood planning regions, Region 14 traverses the Trans-Pecos ecoregion and Big Bend National Park. The region reaches its eastern border as the Upper Rio Grande River enters the International Amistad Reservoir at the confluence of the Devil’s River and the upper Rio Grande River. This region is home to five major lakes and reservoirs including two international reservoirs and Lake Balmorhea at Balmorhea State Park.
