Recent rains trigger sewer spill

Crews from San Antonio Water System are responding to a sanitary sewer overflow that occurred as a result of recent heavy storms. The spill occurred in the vicinity of W. Military near W. Commerce. 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.
