Clarksville Gas and Water will begin sewer line smoke testing in the Northridge, Cunningham Farms and Thistlewood subdivisions in the North Clarksville area on Thursday, August 7.

The work will commence daily at 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., excluding weekends, through August 15,  and will include the following streets.

  • Northridge Court
  • Northridge Drive
  • Manorstone Lane
  • Cornelia Court
  • Nuthatch Circle
  • Chickadee Court
  • Forrestdale Drive
  • Bridlewood Road

Smoke testing is a cost-effective preventative maintenance method to identify possible defects, cracks or opening in the City’s wastewater collection system and to help crews locate areas in sewer lines for further examination.

Workers will dispense non-toxic smoke into the sewer system and look for it to rise from areas in the sewer system, sewer line right-of-ways, residential yards or household roof vents.

Residents are not required to be at home during smoke testing; however, they should pour a few cups of water in all household drains to prevent smoke from entering the home through the drains. Smoke should not enter the home unless defective plumbing is present or drains are dry.

Smoke testing signs will be posted in the affected neighborhoods and residents will see Clarksville Gas and Water workers and vehicles throughout the duration of the work.

For more information, please call the Clarksville Sewer Construction office at (931) 553-2424.
