San Antonio Water System CEO Robert Puente spoke at the SXSW Eco Conference in Austin today, touting San Antonio’s record of the nation’s leader in water conservation. One statistic stood out: San Antonio’s consumers of water has increased 67% over the past 25 years ago, yet SAWS is still using the same amount of water it did 25 years ago. I talked to Puente about whatSAWS is doing now to conserve and plans for the future.
