Urban Waters Partnership

Background Information on the San Antonio River Basin within Bexar County

The San Antonio River Basin within Bexar County has been selected as a location for the nation’s Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP). This partnership will reconnect urban communities, particularly those that are overburdened or economically distressed, with their waterways by improving coordination among federal agencies and collaborating with community-led revitalization efforts. This partnership further serves to improve our nation’s water systems and promote economic, environmental and social benefits.
