The city's consultant will be performing smoke testing of sewer pipes in the attached mapped areas starting tomorrow. Do not be alarmed, this process can make it appear as though there is something on fire, but in reality it is just a way to visually show the techs where potential leaks or cross connections in the sanitary and storm sewers exist and also shows potential leak areas that come out of the ground or from the downspout of a home or business.

Further information on the process can be read from the link below:
