Get Penny Wise With WaterSmart

This free online tool will help you make good water- and money-saving decisions — and avoid the sticker shock of summer water bills.

With San Antonio’s recent return to drought restrictions last week and temperatures hovering around the century mark, SAWS is offering a new tool to help San Antonians avoid the sticker shock of summer water use.

SAWS new free online WaterSmart service provides customers customized tools and feedback on monthly water use, comparisons to similar homes and suggestions where water can be saved.

This helpful tool will provide monthly reports showing our customers how to make good water and money-saving decisions.

Meter reading still occurs once a month, but customers also receive a notice with information within days of the read, as well as the option to sign up for an alert if their water use has changed — so no waiting on a bill to come by mail days later.

Don’t wait — get on board with our newest tool and become a smarter WaterSaver!
