Recent rains continue to impact sewer system

San Antonio Water System is responding to a sewer overflow that occurred as a result of recent rains. The spill occurred along Austin Highway near Ira Lee and Holbrook. Floodwaters have receded but the area continues to remain saturated; crews will begin cleanup when the area becomes accessible.

The spilled amount exceeded the requirement for public notice. See TCEQ notice for more details. No adverse impacts to Salado Creek 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.

See TCEQ Notice (pdf) for more details.
