May 12 - 19, 2015

The Town's Water/Sewer crew will be smoke testing sanitary sewer lines and storm sewer lines in the following areas beginning May 12 - May 19, 2015 during the hours of 7:00am - 3:30pm (weather permitting)

* Warren Park Area: Shenandoah Avenue east to Edgemont Avenue and E. 13thStreet, north to E. 19th Street.

* VFW Area

Smoke testing is performed to help locate where storm and other surface waters are entering the Town's sewers. Air combined with non-toxic smoke is forced into the sewer main lines to disclose the location of connections and leaks. The smoke is manufactured for this purpose and therefore does not leave stains, nor have any adverse effect on plants and animals.

If someone in your home has respiratory problems, you may wish to take precautions on your own, such as making sure windows are open for ventilation or leaving the residence while crews are smoke testing on your street.

To help prevent smoke from entering your home, please run or pour water into all drains, especially those used infrequently such as floor drains. Evidence of smoke in your home during the smoke testing should be reported to your plumber. The correction of any defects in the pipes and sewer on private property is the responsibility of the owner.

Additional Information: DES (540-635-7819)
