Investment, Innovation and Conservation Produce Waterful Solutions

imageThis summer has seen record-breaking temperatures, and we’re still under drought restrictions. As San Antonians struggle to stay cool, SAWS is hard at work to ensure quality water is available in times of drought.

SAWS experts have overseen the development of diversified water supply projects, advanced water conservation efforts, and efficient water management to ensure San Antonio will have water security in the driest of times. And soon we’ll have 16 water projects from nine sources.

A big part of accomplishing this is the investment in drought management technologies such as Aquifer Storage & Recovery. With ASR, SAWS stores excess water underground in the Carrizo Aquifer during rainy times and retrieves it during drought. This earth-friendly technology is a main part of the SAWS 2017 Water Management Plan, which forecasts future water needs and conservation goals to keep us water secure.

Advances like ASR, coupled with a continued focus on conservation, provide a one-two punch for the community to weather drought periods.

Through innovation and planning, SAWS ensures water for your family — not just today, but also for your grandchildren in generations to come.
