The River Authority has been awarded the Debt Obligations
Transparency Star by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
The San Antonio River Authority has issued debt to fund needed capital improvement projects including flood control structures, facilities for staff, and wastewater treatment plant and collection system improvements. In addition, the River Authority has also issued debt on behalf of partner agencies to fund improvements to their wastewater and reuse systems that benefit the San Antonio watershed. The River Authority has no legal debt limits. However, the enabling statute of the River Authority prohibits the River Authority from pledging any ad valorem tax revenue to a debt issuance.
