Ongoing rains trigger additional sewer spill

This week’s rainstorms continue to impact the city’s sewer system. The most recent spill occurred today on the 6600 block of Swiss Oak Drive. SAWS crews will initiate cleanup of the area once floodwaters recede.

The spilled amount 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.
