[ARCHIVED] City of Bismarck will conduct Smoke Testing of Sanitary Sewer Lines

The City of Bismarck will be conducting a smoke test of its sanitary sewer system.  This is done periodically to locate sources of sewer odors, leaks, and breaks in sewer lines.

The smoke testing will occur sometime between October 8-12 and October 15-19 between the hours of 7:30am to 6:30 pm.


North of 43rd Avenue between Washington Street and 19th Street.

Interstate 94 to Divide Avenue between 16th Street and 33rd Street.

The type of smoke used is harmless, white to yellowish-white in color and may have a slight odor.  It is harmless to people, plants and animals.  If the smoke gets into your house, please ventilate your house.

Residents in the area are asked to minimize the chances of smoke entering their homes by running water into the sinks, tubs, showers and floor drains to fill the sewer trap with water.

If you detect smoke in your house and are uncertain about the cause, contact the City of Bismarck Public Works Department at 701-355-1700.
