Sewage spills into SA River on Mission Road

No adverse impact reported


SAN ANTONIO – A small amount of sewage spilled into the San Antonio River on Thursday.

No adverse impacts have been reported, San Antonio Water System officials said.

The spill happened while SAWS crews were working on cleaning and constructing improvements to a large sewer line in the 1500 block of Mission Road.

The spill was contained and quickly diverted into a nearby sewer manhole, but a small amount of sewage reached the river. 

SAWS crews will continue to monitor the area.
