Sewer Smoke Testing
The Water and Sewer department will be conducting smoke testing throughout the year in various locations throughout the Town of Woodstock.  The test of the sanitary sewers will assist the town in locating breaks and defects in the sewer system.

Do not become alarmed if you see smoke coming from vent stacks on buildings, manholes, and holes in the ground. The smoke is a vapor that is odorless, non-toxic, and non-staining.  It is simply a visual aid.

If vapor should enter your building during the test, it probably means that there are defects in the plumbing that could allow dangerous sewer gas to enter. Note the location of the vapor and call your plumber.  Open all doors and windows to ventilate any vapor that enters the building.

You do not need to be present for the smoke testing to be conducted.
