TCEQ Pass-Through Fee

TCEQ Pass-Through Fee

Effective Jan. 1, 2014

San Antonio Water System works cooperatively with government agencies to comply with local, state and federal regulations. As the state-level environmental agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality generates part of its operating revenue from fees charged to utilities like SAWS.

To help ensure you are aware of these increased state fees, SAWS now displays the TCEQ fee as a separate line item on your bill.

The bill change was approved by SAWS Board of Trustees and San Antonio City Council and applies to all residential, commercial and wholesale accounts.


Service Type   Monthly Rate
