Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing
The City of Richmond Department of Public Works - Utilities uses smoke testing to find cracks, breaks, and other problems with sewer lines that need to be repaired or possibly replaced. If you would like to see a video that demonstrates what smoke testing is and how it is used, please click on the video below.
Please note that although the video was NOT created by or for the City of Richmond, it provides a good overview of how smoke testing works in Richmond as well.
The smoke is safe and non-toxic to humans and pets, but customers with respiratory issues should notify the Department at 816-776-5304 before smoke testing is to occur in your neighborhood.
