Smoke Testing of Sanitary Sewer System to Start 1/14

Smoke Testing

Beginning Monday, January 14th, the Department of Public Works will be conducting Smoke Testing of certain public sanitary sewer lines in various neighborhoods.  These tests will be done in one neighborhood at a time.  Attached is the testing schedule.  The majority of these tests are for one day only.


The purpose of these smoke tests is to assure the integrity of our sewer lines and to determine if there are sources of water entering the lines either through direct connections (i.e. sump pumps or roof leaders) or through broken lines in the ground (i.e. the city's sewer mains or homeowner service lines.)  


Defective or illicit connections overload the sanitary sewer system and threaten the environment, as well as the operation of the County's sewage treatment operations.


Below is a link to the City of White Plains Department of Public Works website with information regarding the testing.
