From Tuesday, Sept. 17 through Thursday, Sept.19, 2019, around 8 a.m., field crews from the City of Bryan’s Water Services Department will be performing smoke testing of the sanitary sewer lines to identify broken pipes and other defects. Field crews will inject smoke into the sewer lines through manholes in order to perform this test.
Field crews will enter properties to document defects. At no time will crews need to enter private residences. Citizens do not need to be home during the test.
The smoke will exit from vent pipes on the roofs of houses and commercial businesses, from manholes and from the ground where broken sewer pipes may exist. The smoke is non-toxic and does not leave residue or create a fire hazard. It 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.
