Major Sewer Line Break
NACOGDOCHES, TX – On Sunday afternoon, February 12th a large tree fell across Lanana Creek about 1/4th of a mile south of the loop in an undeveloped area and destroyed a 15” sewer line. This break resulted in raw sewer flowing into Lanana Creek. This line was replaced several years ago after a large floating log hit it during flooding rains.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has been notified and all required notifications have been issued to media and other City of Nacogdoches officials. City Crews are diligently working to plug the sewer line and create a temporary pump over the creek until the crossing can be replaced. An outside contractor will be brought in to assist with this repair. There is not a boil water notice associated with this sewer line break.
Updated information will be shared to the City of Nacogdoches website.
