City Council on Thursday voted 8-3 on water rate increases for 2018 and 2019: 5.8 percent and 4.7 percent, respectively.
Robert Puente, SAWS president and CEO, will go before City Council on Thursday to make the case for two years of rate increases: 5.8% in 2018 and 4.7% in 2019.
There are no easy ways to address the critical water supply challenges that cities across America, particularly growing cities like San Antonio, will face in the future.
SAWS’ increasing commitment to providing affordable water and sewer services to all San Antonians is what makes our city even more waterful.
The San Antonio City Council delayed taking a vote on a proposed San Antonio Water System rate increase Thursday, rescheduling it for Dec. 7.
SAWS officials said the rate increase, which City Council will vote on Thursday, collects funds to address necessary infrastructure maintenance.
SAWS will spend $2 billion over the next five years improving, repairing and replacing water and sewer lines to ensure reliability of service to your home or business.

SAWS proposed a 5.8% increase for 2018 and a subsequent 4.7% increase for 2019.
SAWS residential customers have enthusiastically embraced conservation both inside their homes and in how they water their yards.
