The type of smoke used is harmless, white to yellowish white in color, and may have a slight odor. It is harmless, to plants and animals. If the smoke gets into your home, please ventilate your home.

Smoke testing will occur, sometime during the following date(s) and location (s):

On the outside of your home, or your neighbor's home you may notice smoke coming from:
 
  • Sewer vents
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Out of the ground, along sewer lines
 
On the inside of your home, smoke or its odors may exit from the plumbing or fixtures. This is an indication that dangerous gases and unpleasant odors from the sewer may enter your home. This should not occur if your plumbing is in good working condition. You can minimize the chances of this happening by running enough water into the sinks, tubs, and showers to fill the sewer trap with water. Do not forget, floor drains.

Location(s), identification and correction of the source of smoke entering your house or building, is urgently advised. The correction of any defects in the pipes and sewer on private property is the responsibility of the property owner.

If you detect smoke in your home and are uncertain of the cause, please contact our Utilities department at: 
City of West Palm Beach Wastewater/Sewer Collection Department 561-822-2170   or   Dispatch 561-822-2210.
