Table 1. Estimated public-supply water withdrawals by water source and municipality in Puerto Rico, 2016

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

In 2016, the total amount of public-supply water withdrawn in Puerto Rico was estimated at 551 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) from fresh water sources. Surface water accounted for 492 Mgal/d (89 percent) and groundwater accounted for 59 Mgal/d (11 percent). Population served by public-supply water systems accounted for 3.4 million people, almost 100 percent of the total population. Total domestic water use was estimated at 396 Mgal/d and it is represented as the summation of deliveries from public-supply water systems to domestic users and self-supplied domestic withdrawals. The average per capita domestic water use, which represents the daily water use for the population that is supplied by public-supply water system and by domestic self-supplied withdrawals, was estimated at 116 Mgal/d. Public-supply water withdrawals and domestic use were tabulated by municipalities and by water service areas.
