The City of Fort Bragg Sewer Department will be smoke testing the sewer collection system the week of October 21-25,2013. This project is being done in an effort to limit the cost of sewage treatment plant expansions that will be necessary over the next few years. The smoke testing will start at the south end of town working north. The Smoke Testing is an integral part of this maintenance program aimed at reducing rainwater and ground water infiltrating the sewers. The smoke will escape through cracks, breaks, storm water tie-ins such as rain leaders, and uncapped clean-outs.The Smoke is not toxic and will not harm anyone. Occasionally smoke will come out of drains in houses that are not piped properly. If this happens at your house or business we suggest you contact the building inspector and a plumber to fix the problem as soon as possible. If the smoke gets in your house so will sewer gases which could be toxic or detrimentalif the right conditions exist.Once City staff gets startedand find out how long it is going to take to smoke testeach section, updated testing schedules will be provided. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.Questions regarding this information should be directed to Heath Daniels,Treatment Plant Operator Lead Water, Distribution, and Collections,at (707)-961-4141
