Saluting a SAWS Staple


SAWS President/CEO Robert R. Puente and the SAWS Board of Trustees said farewell to and recognized Steve Clouse, senior vice president and chief operating officer, for more than three decades of service to SAWS and the San Antonio community during a Dec. 4 board meeting.

“We all consider ourselves fans of Steve Clouse,” said Puente, noting that about half of SAWS’ 1,700 employees worked under Clouse. “He has developed relationships throughout the city and state that allow this utility to continue its work of providing basic water services to almost two million people.”

Puente also recounted Clouse’s many accomplishments, including the so-called “environmental trifecta” at Dos Rios Water Recycling Center. The plant is believed to be the only major urban wastewater facility in the nation to recycle all three treatment byproducts for direct reuse: water, biosolids and methane gas.

“I will always work as an advocate for SAWS,” Clouse said. He also expressed confidence in his successor Mike Frisbie, a former San Antonio city engineer and director of transportation & capital improvements. “Mike will fit in very well with this team. I know he’ll do a great job helping SAWS move forward.”

Clouse retired at the end of 2018 after 33 years of service.
