Smoke Testing Notice

The Town of Big Stone will be conducting Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing the week of May 3rd – May 6th in the areas, East 9th, 10th, 12th and 13th, North, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Avenue East, Railroad Avenue East, Shawnee Avenue East and Canonchet Avenue East.  This testing will assist the Town in locating breaks or defects in the sanitary sewer system.  During testing smoke may exit through residential and commercial roof vent pipes, basement and/or other drains and through sewer line breaks in the system on private property.  The smoke is non-toxic, leaves no residue and is harmless to people, animals and plants.  If you have any seldom-used drains, please pour water in the drains to fill the trap to prevent smoke from entering you living areas.  Smoke testing will be completed by representatives of The Lane Group. 

If your have any questions please feel free to contact:
