The San Antonio Zoo currently supplies animals with fresh untreated well water, which is sourced from the Edwards Aquifer. The existing well is currently failing, due to corrosion of the existing casing. There is no backup water supply, and if the well fails, the zoo would be required to import water. The well discharge eventually provides some flow into the upper San Antonio River. This project will install a new well and water line. Additionally, the existing well will be rehabilitated to provide a backup water source for the San Antonio Zoo.
Stem Density efforts are still in place but will not directly affect any parks or trails. We apologize for any inconvenience.
