The City of Elmendorf currently purchases all of its water from the San Antonio Water System (SAWS).

The water in our distribution lines is tested by us daily for chlorine levels, monthly for bacteria and annually for all other possible contaminants and mineral levels. Our water system has met or exceeded the standards for water quality set by the TCEQ for many years. We will mail out a report of our water quality annually to all water customers each summer.

No more than one connection is allowed per meter. Each home or living area shall be separately metered. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in the termination of water service according to State Law until the violation is corrected.

Please notify the Water Clerk whenever you change your phone number in order to reach you in the event of a problem or emergency.

The minimum charge for water is $52.67 ($59.34 outside the city limits) and includes the first 3,000 gallons of water used.
