SAWS to open bulk water distribution sites for those in need

Customers will be allowed five gallons of water per person and will need to bring their own clean containers to hold the water.

San Antonio Water System says they have opened seven water distribution sites across the city in order to provide customers with water.

In a release, SAWS said customers will be allowed five gallons of water per person and will need to bring their own clean containers to hold the water.

The site will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day to assist those experiencing water loss due to this week's winter storms.

SAWS says the sites will remain open until the water system is "back to normal operating conditions."

Here are the locations for the SAWS pump station water distribution sites:

The San Antonio Food Bank is also assisting those in need with food and water. If you're in need of food, pre-registration is recommended for those who can use their internet. However, the organization says you will not be turned away if you do not pre-register and you can register on-site.
