In-Person Irrigation Consultations Suspended

Due to public health concerns, SAWS conservation specialists won’t be making house calls for a while. But hold the phone — our expert advice is still just a call or email away!

As the world around us changes, we’re adapting our conservation programs to help protect our community’s health.

We’ll Call You

SAWS has temporarily put in-person irrigation consultations on hold. Instead, we will be offering appointments for phone consultations. Schedule yours by emailing or by calling 210-704-SAVE (7283). You can also request to join a wait list for an in-person consultation when they resume.

If you currently have an appointment for an irrigation consultation, we will call you at your scheduled time.

Mark A. Peterson was a conservation project coordinator for San Antonio Water System before retiring. With over 30 years of experience as an urban forester and arborist, Mark is probably the only person you know who actually prunes trees for fun. When not expounding on the benefits of trees and limited lawns, you're likely to find him hiking San Antonio's wilderness parks or expounding on the virtues of geography and history to his friends.
