Protecting our environment is top priority
Our customers expect safe, reliable water for drinking, recreation and business use. Delivering quality water while protecting our environment is important to us.
Our wastewater and environmental experts work closely with local, state and federal regulatory agencies to ensure our wastewater and drinking water operations comply with the spirit and the letter of the law. SAWS' “A-rated” wastewater treatment operation has been acclaimed as one of the best environmental programs in the country.
San Antonio is the only U.S. city to reuse all three wastewater treatment process byproducts: recycled water, organic biosolids and methane gas. We humbly call it the environmental “trifecta.”Learn More About Water Recycling
