The San Antonio Water System is restructuring the way it charges consumers for water. According to their website, SAWS' goal is to make conservation a priority by:
- "Reducing rates for lower water use while raising rates for higher water use, like heavy summer lawn watering.
- Establishing a tiered rate structure for water supply fee.
- Extending higher seasonal summer rates by two extra months.
- Charging a higher monthly fee for larger water meters."
