During this Tricentennial year, it is vitally important to recognize and honor the significance of the San Antonio River and its tributaries.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was one of the first formal measures aimed at increasing equal treatment and access for people with disabilities in the U.S., but it did not transform the country into a wheelchair-friendly paradise.
The San Antonio River Authority (SARA) often receives requests to share river management practices with others. Typically, that information can be shared electronically or by meeting with visitors here in San Antonio. However, I have had the opportunity to visit some far-off places to share information about the San Antonio River Watershed and learn about the challenges and successes of other river systems. Sharing information with others around the world undoubtedly strengthens SARA’s river management practices.
