FLORESVILLE -- Officials here are cooperating with both the San Antonio River Authority and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in the aftermath of an overflow March 15 at the city’s sewage treatment plant on Goliad Road in Floresville.

Floresville City Manager Henrietta Turner, said that an alarm sounded at the plant at approximately 7:30 p.m. A generator and battery backup failed, resulting in a pump shutting down. This caused raw sewage to overflow at the plant and from a manhole on Goliad Road. An electrician who responded was on the scene making repairs until 2 a.m. March 16.

The San Antonio River Authority responded Sunday to assist with cleanup, along with the Texas Commission on Environment Quality -- which is conducting an investigation. The Floresville Volunteer Fire Department and Wilson County Pct. 1 Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. also responded.

“I assure residents along Goliad Road that we will cleanup all areas,” Turner said. “There is no danger to the public.”
