The 2017 budget presents a financial plan designed to continue SAWS' mission to provide sustainable, affordable water services. The budget balances revenue requirements with available revenues and other funding sources. Some of the key objectives of this budget are:

  • Continued development and acquisition of diverse water supplies to support San Antonio's future growth.
  • Maintenance and replacement of aging water and sewer infrastructure to include compliance with the consent decree settlement agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as to reduce water losses within the system.
  • Implementation of new technologies to enhance customer contact.
  • Ensuring appropriate compensation and benefits for SAWS employees including an increase in the minimum living wage to $14 per hour and responsible funding of retirement obligations.
  • Full integration of the former Bexar Metropolitan Water District with SAWS through the final integration step of rate parity.

The SAWS Board adopted a combined 6.8 percent rate adjustment in water delivery, water supply and wastewater rates in December 2016 — less than the 7.9 percent preapproved by City Council in 2015 — to support the requirements of the 2017 budget.
