Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Public participation is a key component of SAWS operations and planning. Currently, five citizens groups made up of people with diverse views and interests are learning about water issues and advising SAWS board and staff.

Capital Improvements Advisory Committee
This committee advises and assists in the implementation of the impact fee process, which establishes the method for SAWS to impose impact fees. Impact fees recoup the cost of off-site capital improvements necessitated by new development.

Citizens Advisory Panel
This committee helps SAWS management assess the projects, plans and policies that will help bring new sources of sustainable, affordable water to our community.

Community Conservation Committee
Created by SAWS Board in 1997, this group generates conservation program ideas and helps build support for those programs throughout the community.

Sustainability Stakeholder Committee
The SAWS Sustainability Stakeholder Committee was formed to bring together local sustainability groups to engage in relevant dialogue about our water and planning for the future.

Rate Advisory Committee
This panel helps SAWS develop a rate structure that fairly balances operational needs with available financial resources.

Volunteers @ SAWS
The SAWS Community Activity Team positively impacts the San Antonio community through volunteerism and donation drives.
