Public Service Notice for Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

06/15/2018 Categories: public works

The City of Mauldin will be conducting sanitary sewer smoke test inspections within the city beginning June 18th and will be ongoing for approximately 3 weeks.

The testing program will assist our PW crews in locating breaks and/or defects in the city’s sewer system. A non-toxic smoke will be introduced into a manhole and forced down the sewer lines with the use of an air blower. Smoke may escape from the system at any point where there is an open break or deflect within the line. For example, smoke may rise from the ground in yards, stream banks, storm drains, etc. Smoke will also escape from underneath buildings if poor plumbing exists. Be advised that smoke can enter your home, office or place of business. Should smoke enter your building or home, open windows for ventilation and contact the crew working in the area.

 

The Smoke Is:

NON-TOXIC, NON-STAINING, HAS A SLIGHT ODOR, WHITE TO GRAY IN COLOR, AND CREATES NO FIRE HAZARD                                                    

You Do Not have to be on site during testing!

 

It is advisable to pour a gallon of water into every sink, tub, and floor drain that is NOT subject to everyday use. This will fill the p-traps and prevent smoke from entering the building.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mauldin Public Works – (864) 289-8904
