Heavy Rains Cause Sewer Spill

San Antonio Water System crews are responding to a sewer spill in the far north side of the city that was caused by today’s storms. 
 
The spill is located near the Boerne Stage Road area by Interstate 10 West. The spill exceeded 50,000 gallons which is the trigger for public notice at this location. See TCEQ notice for more details.
 
No adverse effects are expected since the spill was heavily diluted by storm water. SAWS will continue to monitor nearby areas for additional spills.
 
SAWS is presently upgrading the sewer line in this area that is expected to be completed by October 2018 at a cost of about $14 million. Overall, SAWS has more than $170 million in capital improvements budgeted in 2018 to replace and upgrade sewer lines throughout San Antonio.  For an interactive map and details on sewer project construction, visit www.saws.org/sewer.
 
San Antonio Water System provides water and sewer services to more than 1.8 million customers, via more than 12,000 miles of pipe. A consent decree with the EPA requires San Antonio to reduce sewer spills. Please help us improve the sewer system performance by disposing of wipes in the trash, and by immediately reporting sewer spills or missing manhole covers at 210-704-SAWS (7297).
