Smoke to be pumped through Cape sanitary sewer lines

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Harmless smoke will be pumped through sanitary sewer lines near the Southeast Missouri State University campus to identify leaks and defects beginning on August 5. Work will be completed in approximately 10 to 14 days.

People and animals will not be harmed by the smoke. No smoke should enter if all sewer piping for a building is properly connected and in good, working condition.

To reduce the chance smoke will enter your home or business, briefly run water from all fixtures, including in floor drains, to ensure that all traps are full. If smoke does enter your building it will quickly dissipate.
