Massive Overnight Storms Cause Multiple Sewer Overflows

Crews from San Antonio Water System are currently working on multiple sanitary sewer overflows as a result of rainfall of just under half a foot in the area.

Locations with overflows requiring public notice are:

  • 902 Holbrook at Rittiman Road (Salado Creek)
  •  Lackland Air Force Base adjacent to Chappie James Way Road (Leon Creek)
  • 6606 Swiss Oaks at Pinn Road (Leon Creek)
  • 111 Yolanda Street (Zarzamora Creek)
  • 5802 Kim Valley (Indian Creek)
  • 6102 Rose Valley (Millers Pond)
  • 8400 block of Old Corpus Christi Road (San Antonio River)
  • 2900 South Flores Street/135 Cass (San Pedro Creek)

Since the spills were heavily diluted by storm water, no adverse effects are expected in area waterways. SAWS staff is monitoring the areas and will conduct cleanup operations once the floodwaters recede.

See TCEQ Notice (pdf) for more details.
