About San Antonio River Authority Utilities

The San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) is a full-service water and wastewater utility provider within its district. The River Authority recognizes that communities are finding it increasingly difficult to meet their water and wastewater needs.

As a result, the River Authority offers the following services to partnering communities:

  • Commercial and residential wastewater services
  • Construction, operation and maintenance of centralized water distribution and wastewater collection systems
  • Emergency and routine water and wastewater treatment systems
  • Quality training programs
  • Development and implementation of re-use water systems

By partnering with the River Authority, communities in Bexar, Wilson, Karnes and Goliad counties get the assistance they need in meeting both their current and future needs, such as developing alternative infrastructure, making treatment facility improvements and interpreting and complying with changing, and increasingly stringent, rules and regulations.

The River Authority Utilities owns, operates and maintains the wastewater plants and collection systems. The operators and staff continuously attend related accredited sewer and water courses to improve their job performance and maintain or upgrade their state certification status. The plants' operators are certified by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
