SAWS Program Assisting Low Income Seniors

By Pilar Arias

A partnership between San Antonio Water System and UnitedHealthcare is benefiting 25 low-income senior households.

A $10,000 donation from the insurance provider allows the utility’s contracted plumbing company to replace old or leaking toilets, shower heads and leaking water pipes at the homes. In addition to the immediate remodeling benefit, the homeowners selected will see reduced water bills due to conservation.

“We are more than just a health plan company. We invest in our communities. We invest in those that serve us and we are honored to serve them,” UnitedHealthcare VP of Business Development Angel Encinas said.

The SAWS customers chosen were already utilizing an affordability program, yet were some of the heaviest water users in their neighborhoods.
