The City of Port Orange has recently hired Mead & Hunt to conduct a routine smoke test of its sewer system. The testing will begin today, Monday, March 13, 2023, and continue until Friday, March 24.

During this period, residents may observe smoke coming out of the ground. It is important to note that the smoke is not harmful to people or pets and is necessary for identifying cracks and leaks in the sewer system.

According to a Facebook post shared by the City of Port Orange, the smoke testing process involves the introduction of a non-toxic, odorless smoke into the sewer, which is monitored as it travels through the system, allowing for the identification of any cracks or leaks. The information gathered through the testing is essential to improve the city's sewer system. The smoke is non-staining, whitish-gray, and does not pose a fire hazard.

Anyone with respiratory problems in the area of the smoke test that is immobile should notify Mead & Hunt by calling 813-283-0315 or 386-999-1377.
