2015 Water Management Plan Update is in the Works

Water Management Plan

At SAWS, we know new sources of water don’t turn up overnight. The typical new water project can take 10 to 20 years to develop. So it’s important to be ahead of the game in providing water for the city.

SAWS Water Resource planners and community stakeholders are meeting to develop the new 2015 Water Management Plan. Why do this only three years after the 2012 Water Management Plan was developed? The new Water Management Plan will address changes that have occurred since the 2012 plan was created:

  • Per capita water use - This number has been trending downward steadily.
  • Population - New information reflecting increased growth trends.
  • Current Supplies - To reflect SAWS significant progress in bringing new supplies on line.WaterCitySA Survey
  • Drought of Record Revisions - The new model will update the 1950s drought of record to include more recent experience with the drought of the last four years.
  • BexarMet Integration – To include changes in supply and demand since SAWS began managing former BexarMet service areas in 2012.

SAWS is seeking the public's input. Factors taken into consideration will be residents’ priorities for San Antonio’s future. Visit to share your opinions on issues related to the plan.
