Northeast Side Sewer Project On Schedule

imageMay 14-21 is National Infrastructure Week, a yearly reminder that the country’s roads, pipes and power grids don’t fix themselves. San Antonio Water System recognizes the importance of maintaining infrastructure. That’s why we’re investing more than $1 billion over 10-12 years to inspect, clean and upgrade sanitary sewers throughout the city. This includes replacing six miles of enormous sewer pipe on the Northeast Side.

The Holbrook-Ira Lee wastewater project is on schedule and about 25 percent complete. The effort will nearly double the capacity of this major sewer trunk line, which transports waste for more than half a million residents via a pipe big enough to stand in. The $68 million pipeline follows Salado Creek from North of Loop 410 through Fort Sam Houston and ending near I-35 at Seguin Road.

The first phase, from Seguin Road to Rittiman Road, is expected to be complete by April 2019. Phase 2 will begin later this year and is scheduled for completion by spring 2020.
