SAWS to open water distribution sites, some San Antonio residents may not have water service until Monday

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The San Antonio Water System plans to open seven water distribution sites across the city Friday.  Additional sites may be added depending on demand.

Friday’s hours will be 12 to 6 p.m. After that, the SAWS distribution sites will be open from  8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until the water system is back to normal operating conditions.

Customers are asked to adhere to all COVID-19 precautions such as wearing a mask and maintaining at least six feet of physical distance. Expect long lines and waiting times.
