The City of Summerville began conducting routine smoke testing of the sewer system on September 23, 2019. The last time the city did the smoke test was in 2006.

Smoke testing is a simple means of locating defects in sewer mains and service laterals that allow rainfall runoff or ground water to enter the sanitary sewer collection system. Locating and correcting these defects helps conserve the available capacity of the wastewater collection system, lift stations and treatment facility.

At Monday’s Special Called Meeting Public Works & Utilities director Terry Tinney gave an update on the smoke tests that have been completed so far.

Tinney said the smoke testing is only about 1/5 of the way completed and numerous issues have been uncovered, “we still have a lot of smoke testing to do”.  Tinney said the problems will be resolved through the corrective action plan. Watch the meeting below:
