Toronto City Wide Sanitary Sewer Smoke & Dye Testing
Smoke Testing will be undertaken to help the City of Toronto rehabilitate existing infrastructure in neighbourhoods throughout Toronto. The testing of the sewer system will help to identify sanitary sewer line defects where unwanted rain, ground and snowmelt water can enter the sanitary sewer system which was designed to carry waste water. The reduction of sources of rain water inflow to the sanitary sewers will help to prevent surcharging of sewers, basement flooding and excess treatment of rain water
Smoke testing is an effective and economical way to locate sources of inflow/infiltration to a sewer system.
Dye Testing is a method used to confirm the connectivity of an already suspected source of unwanted rain water to the sanitary sewer system.
