Recent Rains Cause Sewer Spill

San Antonio Water System crews are responding to a sewer spill that occurred on the 6600 block of Swiss Oaks Drive. The spill is a result of yesterday’s rainfall inundating the sewer system and exceeding the requirement for public notice. (See attached TCEQ notice for more details.) No adverse impacts are expected since the spill has been heavily diluted by stormwater, and clean-up is underway.

Improvements in this area are part of the work required by SAWS’ agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to address sewer infrastructure across the city. The area is already under construction and scheduled to be completed in October at a cost of $19.1 million.
