The Town of Grand Falls-Windsor is advising residents that smoke testing will be occurring on Thursday, August 18th, 2022 on the following streets and in surrounding areas: Park Street, Scott Avenue, Harmsworth Drive, Rothermere Street, Hatt Place, Pardy Place, Peddle Drive, Ogilvie Street, Kennedy Place, Ivany’s Road, McCarthy Street, Sampson’s Crescent, and Dwyer Street.
The purpose of the sanitary smoke testing is to identify sewer infrastructure leaks and cross-connections. The testing is completed by injecting a harmless and non-damaging smoke throughout the Town’s sewer system. Crews detect leaks and other issues by monitoring for smoke seeping through the ground, manholes, or weeping tiles.
Residents are advised the testing involves an odour-free smoke which does not indicate fire. However, should residents detect a burning smell or smoke that is unrelated to the testing and instead may be stemming from a fire, please call 489-2222 immediately to reach the Grand Falls-Windsor Fire Department for emergency response.
