Ready for what comes next
Not long ago, San Antonio was totally dependent on pumping solely from the Edwards Aquifer. But with the Edwards subjected to pumping limits during drought, a single-source approach moving forward was no longer practical. Using the water resources available to us naturally, as well as investing in new and innovative ways to treat the water that was previously unusable, is all part of SAWS’ mission to responsibly plan for a growing San Antonio.
All this water wouldn’t be as valuable if SAWS and San Antonio residents didn’t know how to conserve it properly. We have a plentiful supply of water, but it’s up to all of us to use it wisely so we can enjoy it generation after generation.
