Smoke testing is scheduled to begin in several areas on campus during the week of Spring Break (March 20-24). Upon receipt of this notice, please run about a gallon of water from all faucets in your building into all sinks and showers and let it drain out. Also, pour about a gallon of water into any floor drains and if you have any dry toilets, please fill them with water.
University Facilities is evaluating the sewer system in your area by performing smoke testing. Smoke testing is a technique where smoke is blown into the sewer system, and the smoke escapes through leaks in the sewers. This evaluation work is necessary in order to locate leaks in the sewers that allow rainwater, creek water and other storm water run-off to enter the system. Frazier Engineering has been hired by Clemson University to smoke test the sewer system. During Spring Break (March 20-24), you will see uniformed crews from Frazier Engineering working along the sewer lines and at manholes.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding the work, please call the following Facilities personnel:
Scott Banks at 864-656-2565
Jay Whitmire at 864-643-6023
During the smoke testing if you have questions or concerns you may also contact Facilities Personnel by calling Facilities Dispatch at 864.656.2186 or 864.656.2187
