Wastewater Treatment Plants
The San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) began providing wastewater utility services in 1966. Today, the River Authority has five permitted active wastewater treatment plants. These plants utilize the latest technology to produce a high-quality effluent and to preserve the ecosystems into which the effluent is returned.
The costs of the wastewater treatment plants and service system, operations and maintenance, facilities expansions, and system administration are funded by connection fees, interest income on utilities funds, and uniform user rate charges.
