NOTICE OF SEWER LINE TESTING
Beginning December 6, Water Treatment staff will begin testing on the City’s sewer main lines. This testing is a precaution, only, and is planned to identify potential future issues so preventable maintenance can be performed.
During the testing period, Water Treatment staff will be entering citizens’ backyards to gain access to manhole covers. A testing device will be placed into the hole during the test, and staff should only be in each yard for 15 minutes or less.
Not all backyards will need to be accessed, only those with manholes present. This can be identified by a large concrete circle with a steel lid that says “Sewer”.
Water Treatment staff will begin at NW 63rd and work south. They will test all streets lying between major numerical streets before moving south. For example: houses situated between NW 36th and NW 30th will be checked before they begin houses situated between NW 30th and NW 23rd. All testing is expected to be complete by January 10.
The City of Bethany appreciates our citizens’ cooperation with this testing by keeping gates unlocked and having pets contained for the safety of our staff.
