The amount you pay for your sewer service is up to you.
Here’s why: SAWS sewer charges are based on your average winter water use. That means the less water you use from mid-November to mid-March, the lower your monthly sewer service charge will be for the rest of 2022.
Your landscape is the single biggest water user. So turning off your automatic irrigation system is the easiest way to use less water. Besides, your landscape goes dormant in winter and seldom needs any additional water other than what Mother Nature provides.
Watering your landscape less now can add up to big savings throughout 2022.
Note: If your sewer service is provided by San Antonio River Authority, your winter average is updated in July, based on average water use billed the previous December, January and February.
