Financial Reports

Created by the Texas Legislature in 1929, the Brazos River Authority is self supporting receiving no funding from the state. With the exception of occasional governmental grants for specific projects, the Authority maintains its operation through the sale of water to municipalities, industry, mining, and agriculture and through the operation of water and wastewater treatment systems for the communities it serves.

The Authority strives to provide reliable and timely financial information to its customers, stakeholders, and other interested parties by posting this financial information online in an accessible and easily obtained format.
