Smoke testing in western Bryan scheduled for April 20-22, 2022

Field crews from the City of Bryan Water Department will perform smoke testing of the sanitary sewer lines to identify broken pipes and other defects in western Bryan from Wednesday, April 20 through Friday, April 22.

Crews will enter properties to document defects. At no time will crews need to enter private residences. Residents do not need to be home during the test.

Testing could continue intermittently through the end of April. The target area consists of properties located within the boundaries of: Rockwood Circle, Lobo Drive, Pinewood Drive, Cedarwood Drive, Streamside Way, North Harvey Mitchell Parkway, Heatherwood Drive, West Villa Maria Road, Navidad Street, Forestwood Drive, Rio Grande Lane, Frio Circle, Pecos Street, Blanco Lane, Yegua Street and Leon Street.

The smoke will exit from vent pipes on the roofs of houses and commercial businesses, from manholes, and the ground where broken sewer pipes may exist. The smoke is non-toxic, leaves no residue and creates no fire hazard. The smoke will not enter a house unless there is defective plumbing present or the drain traps are dry. To help prevent smoke from entering a home or commercial business, please pour about 1 gallon of water into any seldom-used drain.

Residents are encouraged to contact Water Services at 979.209.5900 with any questions.
