Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

The City has hired a Contractor to complete sanitary sewer smoke testing in various areas in Penticton.  The work will begin the week of September 18, 2017.   This technology is used to locate any storm water entering the sanitary system and reduce the amount of rain water treated by the Waste Water Treatment Plant. The smoke is non-toxic and will leave no residue. Although the smoke is harmless, some may find it irritating to breathe, so just open windows and doors until the smoke disappears.  For locations please follow the link below.   For more information call 250-490-2500. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
