City of Kerrville to host smoke testing at Comanche Trace

todayJune 12, 2023

share close

The City of Kerrville’s Wastewater Collections department will be performing smoke testing in the Comanche Trace subdivision on Wednesday and Thursday, June 14-15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The June 14 smoke testing will begin near Lift Station and work through Indian Wells Drive, Rock Barn Drive, Pinnacle Club Drive and Toscano Drive.

Smoke testing is a common test method used to identify sections of the sanitary sewer collection system that have defects such as cracks, leaks or faulty connections that allow rainwater to enter the underground pipe network. During the test, City of Kerrville employees will blow a dense white smoke into the sanitary sewer system, and the smoke will escape again through the openings such as holes in manhole covers and plumbing vent pipes located on or near rooftops.

The smoke is odorless, non-toxic and non-staining and will dissipate quickly. Smoke should only enter your premises if the traps in your home are dry or defective, or if you have uncapped or broken drain pipes. If you detect smoke on your premises, do not be alarmed, and open a door or window for ventilation.

The June 14 smoke testing will begin on Comanche Trace Road, Dry Hollow Drive, Mulligan Way, and Double Eagle Drive.

For more information, call Wastewater Collections at (830) 258-1224.
