Get an up-close-and-personal look at the path of poop water as it journeys through SAWS’ largest wastewater treatment plant.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the water after you flush? Most people don’t. But in case you are one of the curious many, you may be surprised to learn there’s no magic involved. In fact, it’s all science, engineering and simple gravity.
But don’t just take my word for it. Join the SAWS Education and Conservation teams for an online virtual exploration into the world of wastewater.

From the (odor-free) comfort and convenience of your computer or mobile device, you’ll get an up-close-and-personal look at the path of poop water as it journeys through the Steven M. Clouse Water Recycling Center. The award-winning facility is a national example of SAWS’ leadership in water management innovation.
Formerly known as Dos Rios, Clouse WRC is the largest of SAWS’ three wastewater treatment plants. The majority of San Antonio’s sewage has been flowing into the South Side plant for processing since 1987.
Today, the facility remains a cornerstone of the city’s sewage system, cleaning wastewater to near drinking standards for return to our rivers and estuaries and providing recycled water to industries, recreation facilities and educational institutions.
Bonus: several lucky tour participants will win a Flume flow sensor!
