We watch these sewers bubble.”And advocacy group Environment Texas fears sewage overflows could eventually total in the millions of gallons; and it says many systems have yet to file reports.At least 12 sewage spills in Houston have been reported to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.And Brian Zabcik, a clean water advocate with Environment Texas, said that’s concerning. “Think of it. It’s your toilet flowing into floodwaters, bay, and bayous.”Even though its diluted, Zabcik says the untreated sewage is a health concern for anyone who wades in the water; due to infectious organisms, intestinal bacteria, and other disease agents that may be present.A Texas A&M analysis of Houston floodwater shows E. coli levels are 125 times higher than what’s considered safe for swimming.
