Smoke tests planned in Kenner subdivision

KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Don't be alarmed by smoke coming from roof vents, building foundations and manhole covers in Kenner's Chateau Estates Lakefront Subdivision Tuesday-Thursday. 

Crews will be smoke testing the sewer systems in  an area around the Sylvaner Sewer Lift Station. 

Veolia Water and the city of Kenner are responding to complains from residents who say they lose water pressure and have toilet flushing problems during rainstorms.  

The smoke testing will allow the city to uncover any defects in the sewer system. 

The smoke should not enter homes that are properly plumbed or vented. The smoke used for testing is non-toxic and harmless to people and pets.  

City officials say the smoke testing crew will not need to go inside any homes or businesses.
