Cleaning and investigation of the City’s existing sanitary sewer facilities in the vicinity of Buchanan Blvd and W. Chapel Hill St. is scheduled to begin the week of February 19 and last for approximately three weeks.
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.
