Bryan, College Station and Texas A&M University have been named the host community for the 2025-26 Texas Amateur Athletic Federation Games of Texas.
Residents in south central areas of Bryan may see smoke emanating from various areas beginning the week of Aug. 30, as contractors with the City of Bryan perform smoke testing on sanitary sewer lines.
The smoke testing helps identify broken pipes and other defects by having field crews inject smoke into the sewer lines through manholes. During this process, crews will enter properties to document the defects, but they will not enter private residences. You do not need to be home during the testing.
Residents may see smoke exit from vent pipes on the roofs of homes and commercial businesses, manholes and the ground where broken sewer pipes may exist. The smoke is non-toxic, does not leave a residue and does not create a fire hazard. The smoke will not enter a house unless there is defective plumbing present or drain traps are dry. Residents and business owners can help prevent smoke from entering their buildings by pouring about one gallon of water into seldom-used drains.
Testing will continue intermittently through September in the following areas: Ashford Hills Drive, Atkins Street, Basil Court, Beason Street, Bittle Lane, Bizzell Street, Bomber Drive, Briscoe Street, Cavitt Avenue, Churchill Drive, Cindy Lane, Cornish Court, Cypress Bend Circle, Davis Street, Dellwood Street, East Carson Street, East Duncan Street, Echols Street, Eden Lane, Edge Street, Evergreen Circle, Fawnwood Drive, Finfeather Road, First Street, Forest Bend, Forest Bend Drive, Forestwood Drive, Fountain Avenue, Franklin Drive, Frontier Drive, Glenwood Street, Groesbeck Street, Highland Drive, Hollydale Drive, Howard Street, Koenig Street, Krenek’s, Lake Street, Lamona Court, Maloney Avenue, Maulice Avenue, Mckinney Street, Michael Lane, Miller Avenue, Northcrest Drive, Northern Street, Orman Street, Palasota Drive, Pepper Tree Drive, Poplar Circle, Post Office Street, Rebecca Street, Reese Avenue, Roosevelt Street, Rountree Drive, South College Avenue, South Texas Avenue, Second Street, Silver Spur Circle, Sprucewood Street, Stuart Street, Sunset Street, Trant Street, Truman Street, Turkey Creek Road, Union Street, Verde Drive, West Carson Street, West Dodge Street, West Duncan Street, West Pease Street, Waverly Drive, Webhollow Circle, Westridge Circle, Westridge Court, and Williamson Drive.
