The Path Toward Healthy Rivers and Creeks

Tuesday, Dec. 1

12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

The San Antonio River Basin is made up of a complex arrangement of creeks and rivers. When the River Walk barge cruises were suspended this past spring because of the coronavirus pandemic, our iconic San Antonio River was seen in a new light. The improvement in water quality and clarity raised the question of whether the river might someday be clean enough for swimming.

In a conversation moderated by San Antonio Report Editor Robert Rivard, experts on waterways will discuss major projects and initiatives for the San Antonio River. They will touch on 12 graded indicators featured in the San Antonio River Authority’s River Basin report card and how these measurement set up pathways toward healthy creeks and rivers.

Thank you to our Informed Community Sponsor, San Antonio River Authority!

Conversation with the Council:

District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran

Wednesday, Dec. 2

12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran is nearing the end of her final term representing District 3 in San Antonio. During the pandemic, health disparities and gaps in access to health care have been magnified in her district.

In a conversation moderated by Technology and Business Reporter Lindsey Carnett, Viagran will touch on District 3 priorities such as wealth building and economic development. Tremendous economic growth has occurred in the southern sector of the district during her tenure that she hopes to continue to see following her term. Have a question for our guest about District 3? Email us at events@sareport.org to be featured during our audience q&a.

Tuesday, Dec. 8

3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.

The final conversation in the series will feature both District 9 Councilman John Courage and District 10 Councilman Clayton Perry. In light of the pandemic, these Northside councilmen have become increasingly aware of their constituents’ needs and the needs of the greater community. Their districts are traditionally more conservative than the rest of the city. In a program moderated by Senior Reporter Iris Dimmick, the councilmen will touch on their backgrounds, district priorities, and recently approved propositions. Have a question for our guests? Email us at events@sareport.org to be featured to our audience q&a.
