Citywide Smoke Testing

Crews from EnviroWaste will be performing a smoke testing survey of the wastewater collection system citywide. These crews will be blowing non-toxic smoke into the sewer lines and manholes in order to locate broken pipes and other defects.

The smoke is non-toxic, leaves no residue and does not create a fire hazard. The smoke will not enter your house unless there is defective plumbing present or the drain traps are dry.

To help prevent smoke from entering your house, please pour about a gallon of water into any seldomly used drains. Doing this will fill the drain traps and prevent smoke from entering your home. At no time will the field crews need to enter your property and you do not need to be at home during the test.

The information collected during this survey will be used to improve and repair the wastewater collection system.
