San Antonio's water source is the Edwards Aquifer, it must stay at a certain level to be able to provide the same pure quality water. Because of recent droughts, San Antonio and surrounding areas have seen landscape watering restrictions. Many homeowners and builders are adapting their landscaping with drought tolerant and native grasses and flora. Watering days are restricted according to the level of the aquifer. Stage 2 restrictions are in effect at this time, landscape watering is limited to once a week.
We have hot and mostly dry summer conditions in this area, we adjust to the circumstances and go forward.

Check the web page for San Antonio Water Systems for more information. http://www.saws.org.

What most residents of San Antonio don't know is that it is written into the regulations that restaurants are not allowed to bring you a glass of water unless specifically requested.
If you think you can get away with watering your lawn at O'Dark 30 in the morning on a day you aren't suppose to be watering you may want to reconsider. SAWS has eyes and spies around the city and will send you a letter.
Want to know how the neighbor down the street keeps their lawn so green? Hand watering is allowed anytime right now so if you are a night owl, pull out the hose and water away.
http://saws.org can answer a lot of the questions you may have.

It seems like we ALWAYS have water restrictions!! I cant think of when the last summer was when we didn't have water restrictions. Unless San Antonio gets ALOT of rain before the summer months, which we have not, you can count on there being water restrictions. You can only water your yard on certain day'(s) of the week so peoples yards look like crap, you cant power wash, wash your car at home, etc.

it all depends on the level of the local aquifer. If water restrictions are necessary, the utility provider for the particular property will notify you. The local news always announces such important facts also. A good source to go to is the web site for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS)
