Sewer Spills Continue in Rainy Weather

San Antonio Water System is responding to two more sewer spills that recently occurred as a result of the heavy rainfall over the past several days.

The spills occurred on the 6600 block of Swiss Oaks Drive, and on Chappie James Way Road at Lackland AFB. 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.
