LA VERNIA -- The San Antonio River Authority and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) continue to monitor conditions in the area of the Dry Hollow Creek following a spill involving an estimated 207,000 gallons of raw sewage. All debris has since been removed, according to a press release issued by the city of La Vernia.
Utility crews found an overflowing manhole along the creek at approximately 8:30 a.m. Dec. 3. The overflow was caused due to paper and debris that accumulated in the sewer system.
TCEQ has not found any damage to aquatic life, due to the creek bed being dry.
