TOWN OF WHITE LAKE
SMOKE TESTING OF SANITARY SEWER LINES
Beginning the week of May 01, 2018, the Town of White Lake will be smoke testing all sanitary sewer lines in this area to locate defects in the sewer system. The “smoke” that you see coming from the vent stacks on houses or holes in the ground or streets is non-toxic, harmless and creates no fire hazard. Smoke should not enter your house unless you have defective plumbing or dried up drain traps. Should smoke enter your home, you may contact a member of the smoke testing crew working in the area and he will check to see if he can determine where and why the smoke entered your home.
The information gathered from this testing will be used to evaluate improvements to the Town’s sanitary sewer system which may help to reduce costs to operate the system.
All work should be completed within one (1) week depending on weather conditions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
