Area J Smoke Testing Begins October 30

DOSSS Smoke Testing Map

     CTI Engineers, on behalf of the Summit County Department of Sanitary Sewer Service (DOSSS), will be conducting a smoke testing investigation of the sanitary sewer near Aurora Street and North Oviatt Street. The investigation is being performed to identify defects and clean water connections to the sewer system which will allow future sewer improvements to be planned and prioritized. Testing is expected to begin the week of October 30th.

     Homes that will be affected will receive a letter and door hanger prior to the work with instructions. See the map below for the general testing area. Workers will be present in the street near the homes and may traverse yards around the homes in that area while inspecting for smoke. Workers will have a copy of the letter and personal identification with them while performing the inspection.

     The testing procedure introduces smoke into the underground sewer main while workers monitor above ground for visual indications of smoke. The appearance of smoke above ground can indicate a sewer defect, leak, or clean water connection to the sewer system. During the test, you may see smoke emanating from vent stacks on building roofs, gutter downspouts, storm drain catch basins, or from the ground. Do not be alarmed; this is a normal part of the test. The smoke has no odor, is non-toxic, non-staining, does not create a fire hazard, and will dissipate in a few minutes.

     If you have any questions, please contact James Mitchell from CTI Engineers, Inc at 330-294-5996 or Tim Gott, Summit County DOSSS Project Manager at 330-926-2501.
