Major Projects

The San Antonio River Authority provides expertise and resources for a variety of projects throughout its four county jurisdiction in its commitment for Safe, Clean, and Enjoyable creeks and rivers.

In an effort to restore and sustain the native life in this section of the river, Bexar County, the City of San Antonio, the River Authority, and the US Corps of Engineers (USACE) are conducting the River Road Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study in order to identify potential projects, as well as scientifically evaluate these projects for their impact and cost-effectiveness.

Combining purpose with beauty, San Pedro Creek Culture Park weaves public art and architectural design into historic preservation, flood control, water quality and ecosystem restoration.

The San Pedro Creek Culture Park will encompass a total of four phases, with three segments in Phase 1. With Segment 1 complete, the second segment is currently under construction.

The Westside Creeks Project is a community-based creek restoration effort started in 2008 by the San Antonio River Authority. Its mission is: 1) to develop and advance planning concepts for restoring the environmental condition of the Alazán, Apache, Martínez, and San Pedro Creeks, 2) to enhance or maintain the current flood control components of these creeks, and 3) to provide increased opportunities for community enjoyment.

The San Antonio River Authority uses prescribed burning as a land management tool to help maintain the Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration Project. In June 2018 the San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) conducted its first prescribed burn in an effort to promote a resilient and diverse plant and wildlife community, reduce thatch and restore nutrients to the soil, suppress invasive species, and promote environmental education and sustainable landscape practices.
