SAWS Responding to Two Sewer Spills Following Storms

As a result of significant local rains, SAWS has been responding to sewer spills in north and northeast San Antonio.

A 48-inch main sewer main in northeast San Antonio in the vicinity of Holbrook Road overflowed due to infiltration of rainwater into the pipeline. Additionally, a 36-inch sewer main in the vicinity of Starcrest and Wurzbach Parkway overflowed, also due to infiltration. Both sites exceeded the 100,000 gallon trigger for public notice.

Both spills were significantly diluted by water from the storms and no adverse impacts from the spills have been observed. SAWS crews will continue to monitor the areas.
