SAWS Celebrates Silver Anniversary

image

The date was May 19, 1992.

Boyz II Men was harmonizing on the radio, “My Cousin Vinny” was hot at the box office and “Roseanne” was primetime TV’s unlikely sweetheart.

And San Antonio Water System was created.

May 19 marks the silver anniversary for SAWS. Twenty-five years ago, City Council voted to establish a single utility responsible for water, wastewater, storm water and reuse. Three separate water entities — City Water Board, City Wastewater Department and the Alamo Water Conservation and Reuse District — were combined to create SAWS.

Since then, San Antonio has been recognized nationally for its pioneering conservation efforts and proactive water management planning.

Today, SAWS serves more than 1.7 million people in Bexar County, including customers of the former Bexar Metropolitan Water District, as well as parts of Medina and Atascosa counties. This population is served via a vast, unseen network of pipes, pumps and plants, including more than 12,000 miles of water and wastewater mains.

So happy silver anniversary to us! Here’s to another 25 years of making San Antonio Waterful!
