City crews to be testing sanitary sewers for next couple of weeks

City of Huntington utility maintenance crews will be conducting inspections and smoke testing sanitary sewers around the city over the next couple of weeks.

The work will generally only last for a few moments and the sewers will then be ventilated, city officials say.

Residents who notice the “smoke” or vapor are advised it will dissipate quickly, they add. The “smoke” is actually a product with very little odor and does not smell like burning material.

If residents get vapor coming into their home through drains or vents, city officials say they should run water to that drain, then open a window and it will dissipate quickly.
