Who We Are

Who We Are

SAWS is a public utility owned by the City of San Antonio. It was created in May 1992 through the consolidation of its three predecessor agencies:

  • City Water Board – the previous city-owned water supply utility.
  • City Wastewater Department – the city government department responsible for sewage collection and treatment.
  • Alamo Water Conservation and Reuse District – an independent city agency created to develop a system for reuse of treated wastewater.

Since the formation of SAWS, San Antonio has been recognized nationally for its leadership in conservation and proactive water supply management, making San Antonio... Waterful.
