Water is vital to San Antonio’s quality of life. Our county’s population is growing by tens of thousands of new people every year, and the demand for water is growing with it. To help meet this growing need, San Antonio Water System regularly reviews and updates its Water Management Plan to ensure the community has plentiful water supplies for generations to come. This is an ongoing process that takes into account a variety of variables, including rain and drought predictions, shifting demographics, and political and environmental changes.

Water Management Planning

As part of the planning process, SAWS is committed to gathering as much community input as possible. Last year, hundreds of people took part in a survey and provided comments regarding San Antonio’s water supply to the Water Management Plan Task Force. As the Task Force continues the long-term Water Management Plan update process, more public input is needed.  The updated Water Management Plan is scheduled to be finished later this year, and will be posted on this site once complete.
