San Antonio River Walk Draining 2024

Friday, January 12, 2024 8:00am – Sunday, January  21, 2024 8:00am

Beginning Friday, January 12, 2024, through Sunday, January 21, 2024, sections of the San Antonio River will be drained as part of the River Walk Maintenance Program, a joint effort between the City of San Antonio’s Center City Development and Operations Department, Public Works Department, and the San Antonio River Authority. Draining of the river is vital to ensuring it remains a clean and vibrant attraction for residents and visitors.

As part of the routine maintenance program, the San Antonio River Main Channel will be fully drained from Josephine Street to E. Nueva Street and from S. Alamo Street to Lone Star Blvd. while leaving the more populated River Loop will be unaffected. There are no planned road closures.

In the drained sections of the river, crews will be removing sediment build-up and debris, inspecting the channel’s integrity, and making any necessary repairs.
