The Town of Front Royal Water & Sewer Department will be testing sanitary sewer and storm sewer lines September 23 - November 1(weather permitting) between 7:00am-5:00pm. No smoke testing will be done during October 15-28, 2019 as department will be Hydrant Flushing.
Door hangers will be hung weekly informing residents we will be in that area. The tests will be conducted using smoke. The smoke should not enter the premises unless a leak is present. The presence of smoke in your home should be reported immediately to Public Works at 540-635-7819, Monday-Friday 7am-3:30 pm. If after-hours, call Non-Emergency Police Department at 540-635-2111.
Please avoid any unnecessary exposure to the smoke. While relatively harmless, it may cause irritation to nasal passages. Any irritation will be temporary and should quickly disappear after exposure has ceased. Persons with heart and/or respiratory ailments should leave the home during the test. Be sure any house pets are provided proper ventilation or are removed from the home.
To minimize the chance of smoke entering your home, please pour water into all drains, including floor drains, prior to the date of the test.
