Project Title: 2020 Smoke Testing
Reference To: Public Notification
July 13, 2020
TO: THE RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF CALDWELL:
The City of Caldwell has retained STRAND ASSOCIATES, INC. for providing smoke testing services to identify infiltration / inflow of groundwater and storm water into the sanitary sewer collection system. Eliminating infiltration / inflow into the sanitary sewer system will help in reducing the cost of wastewater treatment and will renew the life of sanitary sewer system, which is an important infrastructure asset that the City owns and maintain.
Over the next few weeks, STRAND staff will be conducting a physical survey of the sanitary sewer collection system. An important phase of the physical survey will be “SMOKE TESTING” of the collection lines. The smoke that you will see coming from vent stacks of houses or holes in the ground is NON-TOXIC AND CREATES NO FIRE HAZARDS. The smoke should not enter your home unless you have a leak in your plumbing system. Should this happen, you should contact a licensed plumber to make repairs to your plumbing system.
Digital photographs are to be made of leaks occurring in the system, including leaks on service lines from your building. We would appreciate your cooperation in allowing the photographer to take these pictures.
We anticipate the smoke testing will require several weeks. Notices will be passed out to residences and businesses prior to work in your neighborhood. If additional information is desired, please call:
