Miles and Miles of Pipes Underground Provide Waterful Solutions to the SA Community
Out of sight, out of mind.
It can be easy to forget there’s water and wastewater infrastructure that lies beneath the surface – but there’s much more than meets the eye.
While the city works, lives, and plays above ground, underneath San Antonio, there’s a vast network of pipes, water wells, pumps, and storage tanks that are managed, inspected, and cleaned 24/7 by San Antonio Water System. This intricate highway of underground pipes has a multi-tasking purpose of delivering quality drinking water to homes and businesses, recycled water to commercial businesses, and providing sewer services, which is also discreetly disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
