Corporation Indicted for Environmental Crime Arising from Failed Septic Systems at Mobile Home Park

San Antonio, Texas, November 9, 2017: Today the Bexar County Grand Jury returned a true bill of indictment charging SAN MAN, Inc., a Texas corporation, with the environmental crime of “Intentional or Knowing Unauthorized Discharge of a Pollutant” in violation of Section 7.145 of the Texas Water Code.  This charge results from conditions at the Oak Hollow Mobile Home Park where a number of septic systems failed and discharged effluent sewage to the surface soil in the yards of the park’s residents.     


SAN MAN, Inc. owns the Oak Hollow Mobile Home Park, a 7.8 acre property divided into over 60 mobile home parcels, and located at 6348 Prue Road. 


In October of 2016, the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office and the Bexar County Environmental Services, in conjunction with the City of San Antonio, initiated an investigation in response to reports that septic systems at the Oak Hollow Mobile Home Park were defective and presenting a health and safety hazard to the park’s residents.  This investigation revealed that a number of the park’s septic systems had failed resulting in effluent sewage rising to the soil surface and saturating residents’ yards.  Testing of these contaminated soil indicated concentrations of human-originated E. Coli bacteria greatly in excess of the standards considered safe for human contact.


Intentional or Knowing Unauthorized Discharge of a Pollutant is punishable by a fine of not less than $1,000 or more than $250,000 for a corporation.
