Smoke Testing of Town Sewer System
During heavy rainfall events large volumes of stormwater enters the sewer system causing it to overflow and spill sewerage directly into Quart Pot Creek.
A smoke testing, manhole inspection and house drain inspection programme will commence on 29 May 2017 in order to detect defects in the pipework that allows stormwater to enter the sewer system. This program will continue for some weeks. The smoke is non-toxic but residents are advised to avoid exposure to the smoke.
Residents will be advised when their area is to be tested via a letterbox drop.
If you have any queries, please contact Council on 1300 697 372.
