The Village staff will be smoke testing specific sewer lines throughout New Concord on October 8th and October 9th. A “Smoke test” survey will assist the inspection crews in locating breaks and defects in the sewer system. A notice was mailed to all water/sewer customers recently explaining the testing in more detail. Door hangers will be distributed to those who may be impacted by the smoke test on Monday, October 7th.
The smoke should not enter your home or business unless you have a defect in the plumbing system or you have drain traps that are dried-up. If you do notice smoke there is a strong reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases are entering your home or business. You should open windows and doors and evacuate the building immediately and notify the work crew at (740) 826-7671. If you are not at present at the time of testing and return to find smoke, please call 419-294-9878.
