If you see smoke coming from tubs or sinks, don't be alarmed - it's only a test

People in Templeton may see smoke coming from their sinks and bathtubs in the next few weeks as the Community Services District searches for breaks in the sewer system.

The testing is slated to beginning October 10 and last through the first two weeks of November.

A special non-toxic smoke will be used in these tests. The smoke is manufactured for this purpose, leaves no residuals or stains, and has no effect on plant or animal life.

The smoke has a distinctive, but not unpleasant, odor. Visibility and odor last only a few minutes, where there is adequate ventilation.

Because the plumbing appliances in your house or building are connected to the sanitary sewer system, some smoke may enter your home or business.

All residents are advised that if traces of this smoke or its odor enter your house or building, it is an indication that gases and odors from the sewer also may enter. If this is the case you are asked to notify Templeton CSD Office at (805) 434-4900.
