Why Conserve?

The Edwards Aquifer is the primary source of water for Central Texas. It stretches for over 8,000 sq. miles only 500 feet below the surface and supplies over 1.3 million people with high-quality drinking water. That’s why it’s so important to increase our efforts in protecting and conserving San Antonio’s number one natural resource.

SAWS is a permitted water system with overall regional limits to pumping. Translated into English, this means they’re only allowed so much water from the Edwards Aquifer. That’s why it’s so important to save it. Conservation is the cheapest source of water. Water we save is water we don’t have to buy. So it’s important we do everything we can to decrease our water consumption. Plumbing fixture retrofits, watersaver landscapes, and improved habits are all things that will help us make low water use a part of every person’s everyday life.

Please visit the San Antonio Water System’s website to view the information posted above as well as a lot more helpful info, tips and advise on how to conserve water.

The San Antonio Water System is truly a Leader in the US for implementing Water Conservation Programs. Lets ask our communities to adopt some (or all) of these programs to ensure the availability of clean drinking water in the future.
