Smoke tests set for area sewers

Residents of the North Highlands neighborhood just northwest of downtown could see smoke coming from manholes, sewer inlets or the ground next week.

That’s because Fort Wayne City Utilities will be smoke testing sewer lines in the area for the next two weeks for leaks or cracks. Crews will blow smoke into manholes to test sections of sewer lines. The smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, odorless and creates no fire hazard.

Smoke could come from gutters or vents but should not enter any homes. If residents have smoke in their house, they should call 311.
