BexarMet Integration

About Senate Bill 341

Filed in 2011 by State Sen. Carlos Uresti, Senate Bill 341 set the course for merging BexarMet with San Antonio Water System. After its passage in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, an election date was set for November 2011 when BexarMet ratepayers would vote on whether to dissolve the utility.

The measure passed by 74 percent of the vote, and the U.S. Department of Justice approved the results in late January 2012.

SB 341 calls for the full integration of BexarMet within five years. It further allows SAWS to keep finances separate until a final merger can be completed without any adverse fiscal impact to SAWS customers or bond holders.

In addition, SB 341 calls for the creation of an advisory committee, which will provide input to the SAWS Board of Trustees during this critical time of integration.

For a better understanding of the bill, please read this summary or the complete text of SB 341 (PDF).
