Testing will be performed from 7:00am to 12:00pm and is expected to be complete by Tuesday.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 or please call the wastewater construction office at 931.553.2424.
