Update 10/12/18: San Antonio Exits Drought Restrictions. Per city ordinance, San Antonio City Manager and SAWS President/CEO declared the end to Stage 1 and 2 drought restrictions effective Tuesday, October 2, 2018.
The City of San Antonio is now in Stage I Drought Restrictions according to the San Antonio Water System (SAWS). Stage 1 of the city’s drought plan goes in effect when the 10-day average of the Edwards Aquifer at the J-17 monitoring well drops to 660 feet or below.
In support of water conservation and environmental stewardship, UTSA campuses will water only on Mondays before 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. Campuses will be restricted from washing impervious covers, such as parking lots, driveways, streets, buildings and sidewalks and operating the sprinkler and irrigation systems on weekends. Athletic and sports fields are considered special use areas and additional watering day variances may be requested and granted from SAWS. A SAWS variance will also be required to operate outdoor commercial fountains during drought stages 1 – 4.
