~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Watab Township is located on Benton County's west central border, and is one  of the County's most urbanized Townships. Although there are no cities or rural centers located in the Township, due to its proximity to Sartell, Sauk Rapids, and St. Cloud, as well as such residential amenities as the Mississippi River and Little Rock Lake, Watab is experiencing increased pressure for further development. 

Watab is also the least agricultural Township in Benton County. With 8,596 acres, only 63.1 percent of its land area is designated as Agricultural. Residential development is the second largest land use category in Watab.  Consisting of 3,094 acres or 22.7 percent of the total Township land area, most of these residential areas are located around Little Rock Lake and the Mississippi River. In addition, there are a number of scattered small lot farmsteads as well as larger lot rural residential estates located throughout the Township. According to the most current data, the population of Watab is approximately 3,200 people, which is greater than the cities of Foley and Rice combined.

Due to the location of U.S. Highway 10 in Watab, commercial and industrial development comprises a larger share of its land area than other townships. Comprising 464.4 acres or 3.4 percent of Watab's land area, commercial and industrial development is focused on providing goods and services to the surrounding area as well as to the traveling public. As the Watab area grows, commercial development will continue to be located along this regional highway.
