Sewer smoke testing begins in Cedar Rapids

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The City of Cedar Rapids will be conducting sewer smoke testing in the Kenwood Park area starting Tuesday at 9 a.m. These tests will be held from  Sept. 23- 30.

The purpose of these tests is to find breaks and defects in the city's sanitary sewer system. This is part of an Inflow and Infiltration Study investigating the problem of excess water in the sewer system.

Residents should expect to see smoke exiting through vent stacks on homes during this time, which is a indication that the test is working properly.
