Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

The Village’s Contractor Green Mountain Pipeline Services will be conducting smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system within specific areas of Bronxville commencing Monday, June 20th in an effort to locate breaks and defects in the Village’s sanitary sewer system. The work entails opening and entering of manholes in the streets and public utility easements. The smoke will also reveal sources of where storm and other surface water enter the sewer system and is part of our ongoing maintenance efforts.

A special non-toxic smoke will be used in these tests. The smoke is manufactured for this purpose, leaves no residuals or stains, and has no effect on plant or animal life. The smoke has a distinctive, but not unpleasant, odor. Visibility and odor last only a few minutes where there is adequate ventilation.

Please see attached letter for additional details. Residents impacted by the testing will be notified in advance.
