Should smoke enter your home or business, it will come from a plumbing fixture (toilets, sinks, tubs, showers, etc.). The smoke takes about five to ten minutes to dissipate.
During testing, smoke should not enter a home. However, if it does, this means the homeowner may have a potential plumbing problem on their property. The Town recommends the homeowner calls a plumber at their convenience. Repairs made by the Town will only occur in the public right-of-way.
If smoke does enter the building during testing, open windows and doors to increase ventilation. Note the location of the emission, exit the building and inform the testing crews. Smoke from the testing process should dissipate within a few minutes.
If you are unsure that the smoke is related to testing, please call 911.
