New Iberia To Conduct Smoke Testing Of Sanitary Sewer System Next Week

Smoke testing will take place on Monday, August 26 and Tuesday, August 27, weather permitting, to locate any defects in sewer pipes. The following streets will be tested:

  • 1000 Block of Peggy St.
  • 1000/1100/1200 Block of Walton St.
  • 100 Block of Reynolds St.
  • 300 Block of Diane St.
  • 200 Block of Canal St.
  • 300 Block of Ward St.
  • 100 Block of Bond St.
  • 1100 Block of Tupelo St.
  • 1000 Block of Providence St.
  • 1000/1100/1200 French St.

Any smoke that residents may see coming from vents, manholes or holes in the ground is NON TOXIC and creates NO FIRE HAZARD. Smoke should not enter homes.  If smoke does enter a home, the resident should open doors and windows to ventilate the house, and leave the premises until the smoke dissipates. Smoke entering a home usually indicates a leak in the household plumbing, However, dry sewer traps may allow smoke to enter through drains.  To eliminate this problem, residents should run water into all drains regularly to prevent traps from drying out.

If you have any questions, please contact the City Wastewater Department (337) 369- 2367.
