The Town of Grand Falls-Windsor is advising residents that smoke testing will be occurring on Finn Avenue, Bouzane Street, Moore Place, Gardner Street, Newhook Street, Knight Street, Anstey Place, Earle Place, Shallow Street, Crawley Avenue, Maidment Place, Thomas Street, Dawe Crescent, Ireland Drive, Beaton Place, Hanson Place, Power Street, Canada Place and surrounding areas on Friday, August 12, 2022.
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. For more information, please call 489-0427.
