Region J Planning Group
Located on the southern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the six-county Plateau Regional Water Planning Area stretches from the United States-Mexican border in the west to the Texas Hill Country in the east. The region includes portions of the Colorado, Guadalupe, Nueces, Rio Grande, and San Antonio river basins. Land use in the western portion of the region is primarily range land, while the eastern portion is a mix of forest land, range land, and agricultural areas. The economy of the Plateau region's six counties is based on tourism, hunting, ranching, and government (primarily Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio). Major cities in the region include Kerrville and Del Rio.
