Easton Utilities conducts Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

Easton Utilities will be conducting Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing in the areas/subdivisions of: Lakelands, Easton Village, Cooke’s Hope, Easton Club, Papermill Crossing, and Technology Center. The work will commence in the first location on October 31, 2016 between the hours of 7:00 am – 4:30 pm and continue through December. An informative door hanger will be delivered to each property at least 24 hours in advance of the testing being conducted. If you see or smell smoke in your structure, immediately report it by calling 410-822-6110. The smoke is gray in color and has a faint smell of petroleum.

Smoke testing is performed periodically to help identify areas where unauthorized water is entering the sanitary sewer system. During the testing, a non-toxic smoke is forced into the sewer lines – an efficient and cost-effective way to locate the areas with an issue. The smoke is not harmful and the process is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. “This testing is important to determine if there are any problems which may affect our ability to properly treat wastewater,” stated Paul Moffett, Water and Wastewater Manager for Easton Utilities.
