The annual budget process is an effort to strike the appropriate balance between ensuring that rates remain affordable for SAWS customers and ensuring the ongoing operational and financial integrity of the organization.

The 2018 Annual Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program will allow San Antonio Water System to continue providing high quality water, wastewater, recycled water and chilled water services at reasonable costs, while also maintaining a healthy financial position.

Some of the key objectives of this budget are:

  • Continued repair and replacement of aging infrastructure.
  • Sustained investment in water supply initiatives in support of the 2017 Water Management Plan.
  • Compliance with the requirements of the consent decree entered into with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality relating to the reduction of sanitary sewer overflows.

In November 2017 the Board of Trustees approved the 2018 budget and recommended to the City Council that rates be adjusted effective January 1, 2018 and 2019 to provide the resources necessary to achieve both the 2018 budget objectives and the projected operating and capital requirements for 2019. On December 7, 2017, the City Council adopted the recommended rate adjustments.
