The Village of Albany will be conducting a smoke test of he sanitary sewer system on Saturday November 2, 2019 and Sunday November 3, 2019 from 8:00 a,m, to 4:00 p.m. A smoke test survey will assist the crews in locating breaks and defects in the sewer system.  The rain dates will be Saturday November 9, 2019 and Sunday November 10, 2019.  THE SMOKE TEST SHOULD NOT ENTER YOUR HOME UNLESS YOU HAVE A DEFECT IN YOU HOME’S PLUMBING SYSTEM OR YOU HAVE DRAIN TRAPS THAT ARE DRIED UP.  It is advisable for the homeowner to slowly pour a gallon of water into each floor drain, and other seldom used drains, prior to the testing date.  If smoke does enter your home, there is a strong reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases are entering your home or business.  You should open windows and doors and evacuate the building immediately and notify the work crew.  If you are not at home at the time of testing and return home to find smoke, please call us at 740-978-600 or 740-541-4669.  IMPORTANT!!  If there is any individual in your home or business that has respiratory problems and is immobile, please notify us at 740-698-6127 prior to the testing date.
