Structural, capacity issues cause sewer overflows

San Antonio Water System is responding to two sewer spills that are estimated to have exceeded the threshold for public notice.

The spills occurred on the 6600 block of Swiss Oaks Road near Pinn Road and on the 2000 block of Austin Highway. The spills are at locations that are prone to structural and capacity issues.

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.

See TCEQ notice for more details. No adverse impacts are expected.
