The 2018 Annual Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program will allow San Antonio Water System to continue providing high quality water, wastewater, recycled water and chilled water services at reasonable costs, while also maintaining a healthy financial position.

In November 2017 the Board of Trustees approved the 2018 budget and recommended to the City Council that rates be adjusted effective January 1, 2018 and 2019 to provide the resources necessary to achieve both the 2018 budget objectives and the projected operating and capital requirements for 2019. On December 7, 2017, the City Council adopted the recommended rate adjustments.
