Region A Planning Group
From the rolling plains of Childress County in the southeast to the dry arroyos of Dallam County in the northern Panhandle, the Panhandle (Region A) Regional Water Planning Area includes 21 counties split between the Canadian and Red River basins. The major cities in the region include Amarillo, Pampa, Borger, and Dumas. Groundwater from the Ogallala Aquifer is the region's primary source of water and is being used at a rate that exceeds recharge.
