HWU will be smoke testing the Clay and Dixon Street areas from Green Street to the river on Thursday and Friday, December 12-13th from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. Prior to smoke testing, it is important that homeowners run water in all plumbing fixtures to fill traps. A dry trap will allow smoke to enter a home. Breaks in internal plumbing, not uncommon in older homes, can also allow smoke to enter the home. The artificial smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, and quickly dissipates, but it can be mistaken for smoke from a fire, especially if it inadvertently enters a home. Emergency services will respond to any calls of smoke in the area effected. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the HWU offices at 270.826.2421. ... See MoreSee Less
