Sanitary sewer smoke tests planned Tuesday

As a smoke test is conducted on sanitary sewers Tuesday near Hartland Park in southeast Lexington, Mayor Jim Newberry will hold a news conference.

Non-toxic pressurized white smoke will be pumped into the sanitary sewer system near 3632 Timberwood Lane during the smoke test. If the sewer system is working properly, the smoke will exit a home or business through the ventilation pipes on the roof.

The city plans to conduct the smoke tests in other neighborhoods next week.
