NEW YORK CITY
MUNICIPAL WATER FINANCE AUTHORITY

CURRENT ACTIVITIES, OPERATIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Fiscal Year 2013

The operations of the New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority (“NYW”) consist of executing the requirements of its indenture 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.
