City Clean Up Crews Respond to Sanitary Sewer Overflow After Heavy Rains

The Duncanville Public Works Department is currently undergoing clean-up, remediation and disinfection of two Sanitary Sewer Overflow’s (SSO) that occurred as a result of weather conditions and heavy rainfall on December 26 and December 27, 2018. The overflows affected Mauk Branch Creek and Horne Branch Creek, and are located near:

• Little & South Main Street (Horne Branch Creek)
• 700 Block of Forest Circle (Mauk Branch Creek)

City Officials will continue to comply with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements for a discharge over their threshold limit of 100,000 gallons. Once the water overflow completely resides, crews will begin taking laboratory samples at various points along the creek to ensure the water and environment are safe. There has been no observation of any fish kills to-date.

Duncanville citizens should not be concerned when using water, as at no time was the City’s water system affected by this sewer spill. The City will continue to collect and test samples in the creek area for any contaminants or distress of marine life. The public should avoid contact with waste material, soil, or water in the area potentially affected by the spill. If the public comes into contact with waste material, soil, or water potentially affected by the spill, they should bathe and wash clothes thoroughly as soon as possible.

For more information, contact the Duncanville Public Works Wastewater Department at 972-780-4900.
