The Village of Alger is conducting a smoke test of its sanitary system.
Work crews are in the area today and will also be there on Wednesday.
A “smoke test” survey will assist the inspection crews in locating breaks and defects in the sewer system.
The smoke should not enter your home unless you have a defect in your home’s plumbing system or you have drain taps that are dried up.
It is advisable for the homeowner to slowly pour a gallon of water into each floor drain and other seldom-used drains prior to the testing date.
If smoke does enter your home, there is a strong reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases are entering your home or business.
You should open windows and doors, evacuate the building immediately and notify the work crew.
If you have any questions, call the Village Office at 419-757-4321.
