SAWS Downtown Sewer Upgrades Move to New Location

San Antonio Water System’s comprehensive project to televise, clean, and upgrade downtown sewer infrastructure is moving to a new area.

The rehabilitation in the area started July 6, 2017 and will run approximately 1.5 miles beginning at Broadway and McCullough to Losoya, then along Losoya to Market Street. This portion of the project is expected take approximately one month, with a cost of $2.3 million.

With SAWS investments in new technology, the majority of the work on the downtown lines does not require excavation; this reduces cost, time required, and area disrupted. Most work will only affect one lane of traffic.

SAWS is under a consent decree with the EPA that mandates a SAWS investment of $1.1 billion over 10-12 years to reduce sewer spills. The work required to comply with the consent decree includes system-wide inspection, and cleaning and evaluation of sewer pipelines. Also required are the targeted replacement and rehabilitation of aging infrastructure.

More information on the project is available at www.saws.org/sewer.

San Antonio Water System provides water and sewer services to over 1.8 million customers, via more than 12,000 miles of pipe. A consent decree with the EPA requires San Antonio to reduce sewer spills.  Please help us improve the sewer system performance by disposing of wipes in the trash, and by immediately reporting sewer spills or missing manhole covers at 210-704-SAWS (7297).
