City of Temple to conduct smoke tests


TEMPLE, Texas – The City of Temple will be conducting a series smoke tests in Friars Creek Basin this month.

The technique is where smoke is blown through sewer pipes to capture any potential leaks in the system. The tests will also help identify any backups or overflows.

Officials say the smoke is not hazardous, but may enter the home or driveway.

They say notices will be placed on doors before tests will be conducted.
