SAWS opens two new operation centers

Operation centers located on far west, far north sides of city

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Water System on Wednesday opened two new operations centers.

The operation centers are located at 2231 Hunt Lane on the city's far West Side and at Loop 1604 and Tradesman on the city's far North Side.

SAWS officials said the sites will speed response for the two areas of the city formerly served by BexarMet Water District and provide centralized operations to accommodate the city's rapid growth.

"This will cut down our drive time by up to 30 minutes," said Mike Brinkmann, SAWS vice president of distribution and collection. "The end result is better customer service and reduced transportation costs."

About 200 workers will work out of each service center.
