City Seeks Answers In Sugar Land Sewage Spill

The city says the spill is contained

The City of Sugar Land said crews will be simulating losses of power at a site that has spilled sewage on two separate occasions over the past month. A city spokesperson says the tests will go on for the next three weeks.

Sugar Land residents complained about the odor coming from a spill of 7000 gallons of sewage that started on Sunday.

“It should not have happened,” said Doug Adolph, a spokesperson for Sugar Land. He added that the spill is under control and contained.
