Cultural Water Demand in the Western Mexican Drainage Basin

Cultural water demand data including population, number of wells and the average well pumpage and surface water diversions by the municipal, industrial and agricultural sectors are shown in Table 7.10-6.  There is no recorded effluent generation in this basin. The USGS National Gap Analysis Program, the primary source of cultural demand map data, showed no demand centers for this basin.  A description of cultural water demand data sources and methods is found in Volume 1, Appendix A.  More detailed information on cultural water demands is found in Section 7.0.7.

Cultural Water Demands

  • Refer to Table 7.10-6
  • Population in this basin is very small, with 33 residents in 2000. 
  • There are no recorded surface water uses.  All groundwater use is for municipal demand and has remained relatively constant since 1971. 
  • As of 2005 there were 20 registered wells with a pumping capacity of less than or equal to 35 gpm and five wells with a pumping capacity of more than 35 gpm.
