Smoke Test Notice

Dear Resident:

Please be informed that the city of Reed City will be testing sewer pipes in this area on August 26-29 by the use of artificial smoke. The artificial smoke should not enter your premises unless a sewer leak is present.

This testing uses an artificial smoke that is forced through the sewer lines with air pressure to help locate any inflow and infiltration areas in the sewer system caused by breaks in the lines, breaks in manholes, and broken clean-outs. The test will also help locate any unlawful sewer connections, such as downspouts, weep tiles, and sump pumps discharging into the sanitary sewer.

The presence of artificial smoke in your house should be reported right away to the persons in the street conducting the tests, or by calling the Reed City DPW at (231) 832-2245.

The fake smoke is odorless, but nevertheless looks like smoke. The fake smoke is relatively harmless, but could be irritating. If you smell smoke (i.e. real smoke) please call the fire department/emergency dispatch (911) first, before calling the Reed City DPW.

Please call the Reed City DPW if there is a person in your household with heart or respiratory ailments that could be immobile or alarmed by fake smoke. House pets will react in a manner similar to a person and leave the ‘smokey’ area. Please make sure that an exit is available for your pet during the testing period.

To minimize the chance of fake smoke entering your house, please pour water into all drains, especially floor drains, prior to the date of the test.
