NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Residents may see dark smoke rising from The Sewerage and Water Board's Carrolton Power Plant Thursday. 

The smoke is part of a test for the board's recently-repaired power turbine.

Turbine #5 is one of the main turbines that runs the city's drainage pumps.

The testing at the plant on South Claiborne Avenue is expected to start a little after noon. 

An environmental team will monitor the exhaust coming from the smokestack.
