Smoke testing, stormwater mapping underway in city areas

West Haven Supplementary Smoke Testing Area

WEST HAVEN, Nov. 3, 2023 — CDM Smith of East Hartford and Martinez Couch & Associates LLC of Rocky Hill have been contracted by West Haven to conduct a sewer system study for locating sources of stormwater inflow to the city’s sanitary sewer system.

The three-week study, overseen by CDM in designated Allingtown neighborhoods only, will attempt to locate direct and indirect connections from sources, including catch basins, roof drains and broken sewer pipes. One of the methods used is smoke testing, performed by Martinez Couch.

During testing, white smoke is introduced into the sanitary sewer system via a smoke-generating machine at an existing maintenance hole. White smoke is vented from holes in maintenance hole covers on the street and plumbing vent pipes on or near the roof surface.

The procedure is normal and not cause for alarm.

For full details, read the informational flyer.

For the affected Allingtown neighborhoods, see the project maps: Smoke Testing Area and Supplementary Smoke Testing Area.

In addition, CDM Smith is conducting a mapping of the city’s storm drain system over the next nine months in the following neighborhoods:
