GALVESTON — A sewer line failure in a neighborhood off Harborside Drive led to the uncontrolled release of hundreds of gallons of sewer water last month.

On June 13, the city notified the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality of the sanitary sewer overflow at 414 81st St. in the Channelview neighborhood.

City officials said about 250 gallons of sewage leaked out of a manhole cover. It is unclear how much of the water was released into Galveston Bay. The city’s report to the commission said there was no potential danger to human health and safety or the environment.
