Portsmouth Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

By: City of Portsmouth

Duke’s Root Control is scheduled to begin smoke testing in Portsmouth on Monday, October 9th.  Resident notifications [door hangers] were distributed October 2nd-3rd.  Messages also went to Civic Leagues and community groups. I have attached a list indicating the area and impacted neighborhoods and streets [also copied below my signature] along with the associated map for the location of work.  Weather permitting, the work is estimated to last approximately a week.  If there are any changes to the schedule, we will let you know.

Smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system will occur within the Arcadia Heights, Fairville, Highland Biltmore, Highland Park, North Truxtun, and Truxtun areas in the City of Portsmouth in October.

This non-invasive test of the system does not require private property access and will usually take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. unless in a school zone.
