Smoke test to be conducted Monday, Tuesday

The City of Lebanon will be conducting smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system in the area of 6th to 9th streets from Oak to F streets on Monday, Sept. 12.
Testing will include opening and entering manholes in the streets and public utility
easements. This will allow the city to locate breaks and defects in the sewer system. This
testing is expected to conclude by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
A non-toxic smoke will be used in these tests. The smoke is manufactured for this purpose
and leaves no residuals or stains and has no effect on animal or plant life. Smoke may be
visible if roof or gutter drains are connected to the sewer system or if vents or pipes to the
building’s sewer system have become inadequate or defective. Should smoke enter your
home, visibility and odor last only a few minutes.
