What Will 2019 SAWS Rates Pay For?

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.

What Will 2019 SAWS Rates Pay For?

The 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.

KEEPING SEWAGE
IN THE SEWERS WHERE
IT BELONGS

Our wastewater system is mostly out of sight, out of mind – until there's a stinky, messy problem. SAWS is investing more than $1 billion to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements, repairing and replacing aging sewers and facilities systemwide.

SECURING PLENTIFUL, SUSTAINABLE WATER SUPPLIES

Soon the Alamo City will boast 16 water projects from nine sources. From desalination to the Carrizo Aquifer, SAWS is securing sustainable supplies for generations to come, and building state-of-the-art infrastructure to distribute that water throughout the city.

ENSURING DEPENDABLE WATER DELIVERY
24/7/365

Aging water infrastructure is a challenge nationwide. San Antonio is addressing this need sooner rather than later to save money, upgrading wells, pump stations, storage tanks and miles of water mains.
