CCWD to Conduct Sewer System Smoke Testing in Copperopolis

Copperopolis, CA...The Calaveras County Water District will be conducting smoke testing on the portion of its sewer system along Moccasin Court in Copperopolis from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday January 31. CCWD uses smoke testing to inspect main sewer lines and laterals. Smoke testing consists of blowing smoke mixed with large volumes of air through a manhole and into a portion of sewer line. The smoke travels through the path of least resistance and becomes visible at sites that allow surface water inflow. Smoke can help identify broken manholes, illegal connections (including roof drains plumbed into the sewer system), sump pumps and yard drains, uncapped clean-outs and can even show cracked mains and laterals. CCWD crews can use this information to make repairs and reduce the amount of infiltration and inflow (I&I) entering the sewer system.





The smoke used in the testing may be orange or green in color but it is nontoxic. The District will post signs alerting residents of the smoke testing to make sure nobody is alarmed by unexpected smoke. Local fire departments have been notified as well.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the smoke testing may contact CCWD Customer Service at (209) 754-3543 or customerserivice@ccwd.org.

For all you unemployed trimmers out there, CCWD is looking to hire some Sewer System Smoke Testers.
Extra bonus for bong-bred inhalers.

    Democrats/"progressives"/liberals/leftists/socialists will do ANYTHING to get political power! The hypocritical and corrupt Democrats/"progressives"/liberals/leftists/socialists are going further and further left, and becoming more radicalized, aggressive, and hateful. They are for open-borders, sanctuary cities/states, big government, more regulations, identity politics, politically correctness, "free stuff" (health care, college education, guaranteed income, other entitlements), redistribution of wealth, a weak military, social engineering, are anti-gun ownership, for rewriting-history, censor what they don’t like, and are turning socialist and more violent. And, they’re guilty of voter fraud! We MUST take the House back in ’20, gain more control of the Senate, and reelect President Trump in ’20!!! VOTE STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET in ’20! VOTE, DAMN IT!
