Grease and Debris in Apartment Sewer Line Cause Major Overflow

SAWS crews are cleaning a major sewer spill in an area northeast of the intersection of I-10 and Loop 1604 in far north San Antonio. An 8-inch private sewer line running from the Haven at the Rim apartment complex overflowed, spilling about 120 to 130 thousand gallons into a nearby creekbed just south of the Rim shopping center.

SAWS crews first responded to notice of the spill at 2pm Thursday, and discovered a line blockage that was composed of grease and rags.

While this is a private lateral, and not part of the public sewer system, SAWS immediately began clean-up operations. SAWS has notified the appropriate water agencies, and will continue clean-up efforts. There are currently no known impacts  to the public drinking water supply.
