Sewer Main Smoke Testing

Hey, Park Hills Residents! We've got some important news to share with you!
Starting this week, our City Utility Crews will be conducting Sewer Main Smoke Testing as part of our preventative maintenance program.
What exactly is smoke testing? Well, our field crews will be blowing air and smoke into the sanitary sewer system to identify any defects in the system. By monitoring where the smoke escapes, we can quickly locate any cracked or broken pipes that might be allowing stormwater or groundwater to enter the sewer system.
During this process, our utility crew will be walking around the neighborhood, taking pictures of any faults where smoke is coming out of the ground. These areas will then be marked for repair. It's all about ensuring the integrity of our sewer system and keeping our city in great shape!
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this process. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our Utilities Department at 573-431-2280.
