UCTA South Texas Chapter Continues Active Growth

More than 90 attendees gathered in San Antonio for the April luncheon of the Underground Construction Technology Association’s South Texas Chapter.

Jeff Haby, program manager for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) SSO Reduction Program, was the event’s speaker and discussed in detail the current Consent Decree parameters for SAWS and the program’s goals and positive approach to working with the community to achieve those goals. Haby also outlined specifics about several capital improvement projects including anticipated expenditures. The 10-year program will spend approximately $1.1 billion.

Haby said that SAWS had four key points it wants to target with the program:
• SSO reduction;
• Make sure SAWS can comply with the consent decree parameters and requirements;
• Make sure the rate payers can afford the program costs; and
• Develop an infrastructure that is sustainable for the future.

Founded in mid-2014, the UCTA South Texas Chapter has already become very active. In addition to their quarterly luncheons, the group is planning a fundraising clay shoot at the San Antonio Gun Club on Friday, June 5. Lunch and shells will be provided with your registration. Proceeds from the shoot will help the chapter continue its rapid growth plus help to fund an academic scholarship program. For more details and to get on the invite list contact Tim Naylor, (512) 677-8732 or

On Oct. 23, a scholarship golf tournament is being planned at the Republic Golf Course in San Antonio.

The next meeting of the UCTA South Texas Chapter will be held at the offices of New Braunfels (Texas) Utilities on July 10. The program has been tentatively titled “City of Corpus Christi SSO Abatement: Past, Present & Future.” Registration details will be available soon at the association website,
