Kyle Wastewater Plant Spills Sewage
More than 100,000 gallons of partially treated wastewater, which contained solids, was discharged from the City of Kyle wastewater treatment plant.
Aqua Texas, Inc. operates the plant. The company said in a press release that it’s still reviewing the conditions that caused the spill but "an upset of the sludge blanket in the clarifier" occurred.
The company is trying to clean up Plum Creek downstream of the spill using mobilized vacuum trucks.
So far, the company says, no fish kill has been seen, and live fish have been observed.
