Crews from the City of Bryan Water Services Department will conduct a smoke test next Monday, November 13, 2017, through Wednesday, November 15, 2017, to identify broken pipes, leaks, or other defects within the City’s sanitary sewer system. Beginning at 8:30 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 Wednesday, November 15th. The following areas will be affected:
Properties located within the boundaries of East Martin Luther King Jr. Street, Antone Street, Burt Street, Walker Street, East Pruitt Street, Baker Avenue, Bina Street, Mills Street, East 21st Street, South Preston Avenue, South Ennis Street, Bennett Street, North Houston Avenue, North Hutchins Street, East 29th Street, South Brewer Street, East 22nd Street, Travis Street, East Dodge Street, North Brown Street, North Polk Avenue, East 26th Street, South Coulter Drive, South Brown Street, Pierce Street, Banks Avenue, East 25th Street, North Coulter Drive, Brogdon Street, East 27th Street, Woodbine Court, South Haswell Drive, East 23rd Street, South Hutchins Street, Robertson Street, Ettle Street, Wimberly Place, North Preston Avenue, Park Street, North Burleson Drive, East 24th Street, North Ennis Street, North Gordon Street, East William J. Bryan Parkway, Forest Lane, South Gordon Street, Chadley Court, South Dillard Street, East 29th Street, North Washington Avenue, East 28th Street, Hoppess Street, and East 30th Street.
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.
