2016 & 2017 Approved Rates Target Long-term Needs

SAWS Board and San Antonio City Council approved change's to SAWS water and sewer rate structure and rates for 2016 and 2017.

What the Rates Will Pay For The approved rate adjustment will average 7.5 percent in 2016, or about $3.90 on the average residential bill after restructuring. In 2017, we are proposing up to a 7.9 percent adjustment, which is approximately $4.37 for the average water customer.

Customers who are low water users will actually see a total price decrease in their bill of 9.2 percent, or $1.32, thanks to the proposed rate structure change.

The rate adjustment will help pay for new water supply projects, sewer system improvements required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other capital improvement projects.

"We have worked hard to make SAWS more efficient with our operations, our workforce and our facilities," said President/CEO Robert R. Puente. "But as we look at San Antonio's rapidly growing population, we also need to increase the utility's capacity to serve them."

Please note that water rates will not change for customers in areas formerly served by Bexar Metropolitan Water District.
