Clean-up Underway at Sewer Spill on Holbrook Road

San Antonio Water System is responding to a sewer spill on the 700 block of Holbrook Road near Salado Creek. The volume of the spill has exceeded the requirement for public notice at this location. Crews have begun cleanup of the area.

See TCEQ notice for more details. No adverse effects are expected, but SAWS will continue to monitor the area.

Areas prone to sewer overflows are the focus of projects replacing and upgrading capacity of sewer lines. SAWS presently has two active projects along Holbrook to address these sewer spills with a total construction cost of approximately $65 million.

SAWS’ contractor for Phase One of the projects where this spill occurred, Southland/Renda Joint Venture, is approximately 90 percent complete, and expects all sewer tie-ins to be complete by November 1, 2019.  Phase Two is approximately 70 percent complete.
