Public Notice – Smoke Testing
The City of Cave Junction has contracted with Civil West Engineering Services to perform smoke testing of the sewer lines. Smoke testing activities are tentatively scheduled to occur between Wednesday, July 19th through Friday, July 21st. Smoke testing will be undertaken throughout the community during these days.
Smoke testing is an efficient and cost-effective way to identify system leaks and locations where unwanted storm water is entering the sewer lines. These problem areas are quickly identified by the smoke escaping through the holes in the system and being observed above ground by workers.
During testing, residents may notice smoke escaping from their eaves and yard drains. Smoke should not enter the building unless there exists faulty or improper traps or drains. Residents can rest assured that the smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, non-flammable and is harmless to people, animals, and plants.
During testing, smoke should exit the vent stack of houses and possibly escape through manholes. Any other observed smoke may suggest there is a problem with the sewer system. The presence of smoke in your house can be an indicator that there are available pathways for dangerous and toxic gases entering your house. If this is the case, a plumbing professional should be contacted. If you notice smoke in your house or on your property, please report it immediately to the personnel conducting the test or call City Hall at (541) 592-2156.
The Kerby Water District (KWD) will hold its monthly board meeting on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at 1 p.m. at the Kerby Belt Building, 24353 Redwood Hwy. The meeting will include but not be limited to monthly business and financial reports. This is a public meeting and both the public and district members are encouraged to attend. The KWD is an equal opportunity provider.
