The New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority ("NYW") announced today that it was postponing its planned $680 million of combined refunding and new money fixed-rate and variable-rate tax-exempt bond financing scheduled to close on May 8, 2001, due to market conditions. NYW will continue to monitor market conditions on a day-to-day basis over the next few days and weeks to identify ongoing opportunities for the proposed bond sale.
