Due to extreme heat and drought, SAWS is experiencing a record number of water main breaks. We are working 24/7 to make repairs, taking necessary heat-related safety precautions. Thank you for your patience.

Aquifer Protection Plan

As part of the City of San Antonio’s efforts to protect water quality in Bexar County and as a direct result of the “33 Mandates,” the Aquifer Protection Ordinance No. 81491 was passed by the San Antonio City Council on Jan. 12, 1995. Ordinance No. 81491 requires all identified Category 2 and 3 properties over the Recharge Zone in Bexar County to have a completed Aquifer Protection Plan prior to development of the site. Please download the Aquifer Protection Plan if you need to fill one out for a Category 2 or 3 property.
