Rainstorms Trigger Sewer Overflows

 San Antonio Water System crews are responding to two sewer overflows that occurred as a result of recent rainstorms. 

The spills occurred at 8430 W. Military Drive near W. Commerce Drive and on the 6600 block of Swiss Oak Drive.

The spilled amounts exceeded the requirement for public notice. See TCEQ notice for more details. No adverse impacts are expected since the spill has been heavily diluted by stormwater.

Areas prone to sewer overflows are the focus of projects replacing and upgrading capacity of sewer lines. Overall, SAWS has more than $170 million in capital improvements budgeted in 2018 to replace and upgrade sewer lines throughout San Antonio.
