Changes to TCEQ Customer Service Inspection
SAWS regulations regarding the TCEQ Customer Service Inspection (CSI) have changed.

TCEQ CSI forms must now be submitted before an account with continuous service can be established. Water meters can be set without completion of a TCEQ CSI form; however, service will be temporary only until all of the requirements of the service agreement have been met.
