Table 2. Estimated public-supply water withdrawals by water source and PRASA public water system in Puerto Rico, 2018

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Public-supply water withdrawals in Puerto Rico have been compiled annually since 2014 as part of an ongoing effort between the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and the U.S Geological Survey. In 2018, the total amount of public-supply water withdrawn in Puerto Rico was estimated at 593 million gallons per day (Mgal/d) from freshwater sources. Surface-water withdrawals accounted for 533 Mgal/d (90 percent) and groundwater withdrawals accounted for 60 Mgal/d (10 percent). Population served by public-supply water systems accounted for 3.4 million people, almost 100 percent of the total population. Public-supply water withdrawals were tabulated by municipality and by public water system.
