Cleveland Utilities subcontractors will continue smoke testing Monday as part of the ongoing Inflow & Infiltration Sewer Rehabilitation program, according to Greg Clark, CU Water and Wastewater Division engineer.
Two contractors involved in the testing are Utility Technologies and CSL Services.
The neighborhoods scheduled for testing by each of the contractors are listed below:
n Utility Technologies: 29th Street, 30th Street, Holmes Drive, Blackburn Drive, Scenic Drive, Midfield Circle, Midfield Court, Ginger Circle Drive, Ascalon Drive and Crabapple Drive.
n CSL Services: Circle Drive, McDonald Lane, Forest Ridge Drive, Boyd Street, South Lee Highway, Keith Street, Crest Drive, Refreshment Lane, Lupton Lane, Westland Drive, Volunteer Drive and Westover Drive.
The smoke testing should begin by mid-morning Monday and continue through Friday weather-permitting, Clark said. Contractors should also be distributing smoke-testing notices throughout the neighborhoods prior to the start of testing, he explained.
“Once residents have received a notice, the smoke testing should occur within the next 48 hours,” Clark said. “Anyone with questions about the smoke testing is asked to contact the contractors via the telephone numbers at the bottom of the smoke-testing notice; or, they can contact Cleveland Utilities.”
Clark thanked residents of the south Cleveland area for their patience with the CU project. This is the first general area of the CU service region to be tested by contractors as part of the Sewer Rehabilitation Program.
“Cleveland Utilities greatly appreciates the cooperation and understanding of the community as we continue the Inflow & Infiltration study,” Clark said.
