SAWS Rate Adjustments for 2014-2015
Approved by City Council

San Antonio water is Water's Most Resourceful City

San Antonio City Council voted in November to implement a 5.1 percent increase in the average monthly residential bill for 2014.

In addition, City Council approved a request for a 2015 rate increase not to exceed 5.3 percent. The increases will amount to about $2.58 per month in 2014 and $2.80 in 2015.

Over the next two years 84 percent of new revenue will be used to address long-term water supplies as well as wastewater compliance efforts required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Almost half of the increase is to bring the latest non-Edwards Aquifer water supplies on line in San Antonio. SAWS has invested wisely in water supply projects in the past, helping San Antonio avoid Stage 3 water restrictions during the recent drought.

What the Rates Will Pay For

SAWS significantly reduced its projected 2014 rate increase of 13.5 percent by cutting more than $10 million in costs and operating expenses, including the elimination of 41 positions.

"We are committed to operating more efficiently so our ratepayers can continue to receive a high level of service at the lowest possible price," said Robert R. Puente, SAWS president and CEO.
