Early Morning Thunderstorms Trigger Sewer Overflow

Crews from San Antonio Water System are responding to a sanitary sewer overflow that occurred today as a result of heavy thunderstorms this morning. The spill occurred along Holbrook Road between Austin Highway and Rittiman Road. SAWS crews have initiated cleanup of the area.

The spill amount has exceeded the requirement for public notice. See TCEQ notice for more details. No adverse impacts to Salado Creek are expected since the spill has been heavily diluted by storm water.

On Feb. 7, 2017 the SAWS Board approved $35 million for the initial phase of construction upgrades to increase the size of the sewer line through the Holbrook Road area and prevent these spills in the future. Construction will take approximately two years.
