Water is vital to San Antonio’s quality of life. Our county’s population is growing by tens of thousands of new people every year, and the demand for water is growing with it. To help meet this growing need, San Antonio Water System regularly reviews and updates its Water Management Plan to ensure the community has plentiful water supplies for generations to come. This is an ongoing process that takes into account a variety of variables, including rain and drought predictions, shifting demographics, and political and environmental changes.
