Impact from Storm Results in Sewer Spills

The impacts from this morning’s storm is causing flooding conditions in San Antonio, causing sewer spills on the 1800 block of Austin Highway near Ira Lee Road and on Chappie James Way Road at Lackland AFB.

SAWS crews will initiate cleanup of the sewer spill areas 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.
