Continual Rainstorms Trigger Sewer Overflows in the Area

San Antonio Water System crews are responding to four sanitary sewer overflows that were a result of significant weekend rain storms. The spill amounts at all four locations have exceeded the requirement for public notice. The locations impacted are:

Inside Lackland Air Force Base adjacent to Chappie James Way Road (Leon Creek)

The 500 to 700 block of Holbrook Road (Salado Creek)

600 W. Mitchell (San Pedro Creek)

8703 Old Corpus Christi Road (San Juan Ditch)

No adverse effects are expected in Leon, Salado and San Pedro Creek and the San Juan Ditch since the spills were heavily diluted by storm water. SAWS staff is monitoring the areas and will conduct cleanup operations once floodwaters recede and it is safe to proceed.  

See attached TCEQ notices for more details.
