The River Authority
Jul 17, 2020

The San Antonio River Authority staff is committed to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers but we need YOU to help us protect and preserve our natural resources for future generations. There are many ways you can get involved and Be River Proud! We want to highlight your positive actions so please share with us pictures or videos of you and your loved ones on social media using #BeRiverProud. Once a month, we’ll choose among the posts to share on our blog!

Need some inspiration? We asked our staff to share how they are River Proud and below are some of their submissions.

Permeable Paver Maintenance

“This is a picture of our Watershed and Park Operations crew maintaining the Guenther Permeable Paver Parking Lot. After a sweeper truck sweeps and vacuums the parking lot removing any debris that may be clogging the space between the pavers, our crews fill in the rock that was also removed as part of the process. They do this every quarter to keep the system functioning properly and to protect the San Antonio River!”
