2019 Rates Aim To Enhance Infrastructure Citywide

Water and sewer projects lead the list of reasons San Antonio Water System’s budget includes a rate adjustment for 2019, helping ensure dependable water service to all customers for decades to come.

imageThe 4.7 percent rate adjustment was approved by San Antonio City Council in December 2017 and will change the average monthly residential bill (excluding regulatory pass-through fees) in 2019 from $62.89 to $65.83 — a difference of $2.94.

The additional revenue will enable SAWS to replace aging critical systems throughout the city, as well as support SAWS improvements being made in connection with street projects funded by the city’s 2017 bond program.

The adjustment will also allow multiyear water and sewer projects to move forward, in addition to major technology upgrades such as possible wireless meter reading.

The new rates will take effect Jan. 1, 2019, and appear on February bills.
