American Tobacco Sanitary Sewer Improvements

Project Details

Cleaning and investigations of the City’s existing sanitary sewer facilities in the American Tobacco vicinity will begin the week of August 7 and last for approximately two months.  

Planned work includes:

  • Light cleaning and closed-circuit television (CCTV) inspections of the existing sanitary sewer located within roadways
  • Lane closures to allow access to existing sanitary sewer manholes
  • Dye testing to verify active sewer services. Residents and business owners will be contacted about assisting with dye testing of sewer service connections.
  • Smoke testing of the existing sanitary sewer:
    -Non-harmful smoke will be introduced to the existing sanitary sewer
    -It is likely that smoke will be visible coming from manholes and drains during the smoke testing - this is normal and expected
    -Door hangers will be distributed seven days in advance of any smoke testing
  • Traffic control signs and markings in active work areas

Pedestrian and driveway access to buildings / facilities will be maintained at all times.
