OWASA smoke tests

The Orange Water and Sewer Authority continues smoke testing of sewer lines this week.

The utility plans to finish up on Friday pumping non-toxic white smoke through the systems along Windsor Circle, Weaver Dairy Road, Severin Street, Bradley Road Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Mount Bolus Road, Markham Drive, Longleaf Drive, Homestead Road, Cedar Hills Circle, Granville Towers East and McMasters Street.

The smoke testing will indicate locations where there are leaks or other openings in OWASA sewers and in private service lines that drain to the sanitary sewer system. The smoke testing may also show the location of storm drains that are connected (improperly) to OWASA’s sanitary sewer system, and unauthorized sewer connections.
