SAWS employees to be reprimanded for water break

Water break happened in July on Bitters Road


SAN ANTONIO – Some employees from San Antonio Water Systems will be reprimanded after an investigation determined human error was partly to blame for a water main break in Stone Oak back in July.

At the time, SAWS officials said a mechanical malfunction caused the break in the 48-inch water line on Bitters Road off of U.S. 281.

Some Stone Oak residents had to limit their outdoor watering because of the break.

A spokesman for SAWS didn't say what personnel action the employees are facing or even the number of employees involved.
