San Antonio Water System works cooperatively with government agencies to comply with local, state and federal regulations. As the state-level environmental agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality generates part of its operating revenue from fees charged to utilities like SAWS.

To help recover the fees assessed by TCEQ, SAWS charges every customer a TCEQ pass-through fee.

The pass-through fee applies to all residential, commercial and wholesale accounts. The pass-through fees for 2021 do not change from the fees charged in 2020

Service Type Monthly Rate
Water Fee $0.21
Wastewater Fee $0.06
