SAWS Crews Respond to Sewer Spill

San Antonio Water System crews are responding to a sewer spill that occurred as a result of a 24-inch sewer main collapse in the 13000 block of Ray Ellison Boulevard near Highway 90.

A bypass has already been established and the spill has been contained. This area was already targeted in the scope of work developed for the EPA consent decree (see, but the line failed before construction work could begin. 

Work on the site is budgeted at $5.7 million with a project time of about one year. The collapse may require this estimate to change.

No adverse impacts are expected; however, the amount of sewage exiting the system exceeded the requirement for public notice. See the TCEQ notice for more details.
