The Logo of the Clarksville, TN Gas and Water DepartmentThe Clarksville Gas and Water Department will perform sewer line smoke testing in the Green Acres subdivision from Tiny Town Road to State Line Road beginning Monday, October 12th, through Friday, October 16th. Smoke testing is a cost-effective preventative maintenance method to identify possible defects, cracks or opening in the City’s wastewater collection system to help crews locate areas in the sewer line for further examination.

Area residents may see “smoke testing” signs in their neighborhood and should not be alarmed if smoke is rising from manholes or sewer line right-of-ways as testing progresses. Residents may contact the on-site crew if smoke is noticed in or around the home.
