The Water Management Plan, which is updated every five years, ensures San Antonio Water System and the community we serve are navigating a secure water future together. The plan incorporates changes in population projections, water demand patterns, regulations, climate change and water supply options, providing a clear direction for community development.

We’d like your feedback on the SAWS plan to meet San Antonio’s long-term water needs through 2075.

Water Management Plan Process

  • The Water Management Plan update process began with taskforce meetings in March of 2022 which continued through January of 2024.
  • A concerted community engagement process also began in March of 2022. This effort included community meetings and this dedicated website
  • The site facilitated the review of the 2017 Water Management Plan, presented a poll regarding importance of WMP topics for the update, listed scheduled community meetings, and still provides easy access to view recorded online meetings.
  • A Water Management Plan draft was made available on June 21, 2024 and SAWS will be accepting public comments on the plan until 6 p.m. on Friday, August 2, 2024.
  • Community feedback will be reviewed, and necessary changes will be implemented before it is presented to the SAWS Board for final approval.
