Vandalism to Area Sewer Main Results in Overflow

San Antonio Water System crews are responding to a sanitary sewer overflow that occurred today as a result of vandalism. The spill, from the 10-inch sewer main, occurred in the far southwest portion of the city close to Catalina Bay and Indian Creek. 

The manhole cover was stolen and multiple foreign objects were extracted from the pipe.


The spill amount has exceeded the requirement for public notice. No adverse impacts to Indian Creek are expected since the creek is dry. Cleanup of the area has been initiated by SAWS crews.

See attached TCEQ notice for more details.
