City of Bryan Schedules Sanitary Sewer System Smoke Test

Crews from the City of Bryan Water Services Department will conduct a smoke test next Tuesday, July 10, 2018, through Friday, July 13, 2018, to identify broken pipes, leaks, or other defects within the City’s sanitary sewer system. Beginning at 8 AM daily, City crews will release smoke into the sanitary sewer lines through manholes to conduct the test. City crews will enter properties to document defects but will not need or request to enter private residences. Citizens do not need to be home during the test.

Please note testing could continue intermittently through the end of July. The following areas will be affected:

Properties located within the boundaries of Ravenwood Drive, Sierra Drive, Littleton Court, Sutton Court, Woodcrest Drive, Seminole Court, Park Hollow Circle, Tiffany Park Drive, Park Stone, Park Ridge, Taft Drive, Kirkwood Drive, Kingsdale Drive, Kenwood Drive, Apache Court, Sioux Circle, Windwood Circle, Autumn Circle, Oak Valley Circle, Broad Oak Circle, Meadowbrook Drive, Cedar Oak Circle, Green Valley, Oak Cliff Circle, Willow Oak Street, Shawnee Circle, Meadowwood Drive, Woodbriar Drive, Cedar Hill Drive, Cheyenne Circle, Creekridge Street, Boonville Road, Legacy Court, Serrano Court, Willowick Drive, Miraloma Drive, Miramont Circle, Durant Court, Altura Drive, Willowick Drive, Miramont Boulevard, Serrano Court, Legacy Court, Tuscany Court, Villaggio Court, Villaggio Drive, and Tesori Drive.

Citizens will see smoke exit from rooftop vent pipes on houses and commercial businesses, from manholes, and from the ground where broken sewer pipes may exist. This smoke is non-toxic, does not leave a residue, and is not a fire hazard. The smoke will not enter a home or business unless there is defective plumbing present or the drain traps are dry. To help prevent smoke from entering your home or business, please pour about one gallon of water into any seldom-used drain.

Have questions? Please contact the City of Bryan Water Services Department by calling (979) 209-5900.
