Smoke Test Public Notice

City of Laurinburg

Public Notice

To all occupants and residents:

The city will be conducting leak tests in the sanitary sewer system by blowing smoke into the pipes. This smoke will reveal sources of sewer odors in your neighborhood as well as places where storm and other surface waters are entering the sanitary system.

A special non-toxic smoke will be used in these tests. This smoke is manufactured for this purpose, leaves no residuals or stains and has no effects on plant and animal life. The smoke has a distinctive, but not unpleasant, odor. Visibility and odor last only a few minutes, where there is adequate ventilation.

Because the plumbing appliances in your house or building are connected to the sanitary sewer system, some of this smoke may enter your house if the:

• Vents connected to your building’s sewer pipes are inadequate, defective, or improperly installed.

• Traps under sinks, tubs, basins, showers, and other drains are dry, defective, improperly installed or missing.

• Pipes, connections and seals of the wastewater drain system in and under your building are damaged, defective, have plugs missing or are improperly installed.

All residents are advised that if traces of this smoke or its odor enters your house or building, it is an indication that odors from the sewer also may enter. These can be both unpleasant and dangerous, as well as a health hazard to the occupants. Location, identification and correction of the source of smoke that enters your house is urgently advised.

If you have any questions or desire more information, please telephone the city public works department at 276- 2364.
