On June 22, 2016, a collapsed City of Fort Worth sanitary sewer main was discovered that caused wastewater to flow into Mary’s Creek, about 1/3 mile east of Loop 820 in Benbrook. Benbrook Water Authority facilities were not impacted by this collapse.
Since that time, the Fort Worth Water Department has led efforts to contain and clean up the spill as well as to repair the collapsed sanitary sewer main. While these efforts continue, City of Benbrook personnel are monitoring clean-up efforts within Benbrook City Limits.
