Current Activities, Operations and Accomplishments

Fiscal Year 2018

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 notes and long-term bonds. NYW 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 portfolios by monitoring and directing application of funds to meet debt service on its bonds and notes.
