Current Activities, Operations and Accomplishments

Fiscal Year 2017

The operations of the New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority (“NYW”) consist of executing the requirements of the New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority Act, NYW’s bond resolutions and other governing documents. NYW finances the ongoing capital needs of the water and sewer system of the City of New York (the “System”) with proceeds from the issuance of commercial paper notes, bond anticipation notes (“BANs”) and long-term bonds. The Authority uses these proceeds to reimburse the City of New York’s general fund for capital expenditures incurred on behalf of the System. NYW complies with federal tax law to preserve the tax exemption of its debt. NYW also maintains various contractual obligations necessary to achieve efficient and cost-effective financing and administers its outstanding debt and investments portfolio by monitoring and directing application of funds to meet debt service on its bonds and notes.

To provide new money funding, over the course of the fiscal year, NYW drew down $648.56 million against BANs issued to the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (“EFC”).

On October 6, 2016, NYW issued $201.00 million of fixed rate tax-exempt Second Resolution Bonds, Fiscal 2017 Series AA, which was priced in a competitive sale.
