Record-breaking September Rains Continue to Impact Sewers

This weekend’s additions to the September rainfall continued to impact the city’s sewer system. The most recent spills occurred on the 1800 block of Austin Highway near Ira Lee Road, and in the vicinity of Starcrest and Wurzbach Parkway. SAWS crews will initiate cleanup of the area once floodwaters recede.

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.
