SAWS to smoke test over the Edwards Aquifer

SAWS contractors will test sewers over the next couple of years, including lateral lines located on residential private property. The area within Stone Oak POA boundaries is scheduled for testing in 2020. To accomplish this, contractors will open manholes in streets and easements and use a non-toxic smoke to locate breaks and defects.

A notice will be placed on every door before testing begins at your home. You do not need to be home for testing to occur. Contractors will not enter your home, but they may temporarily access your yard. Securing your pets may be necessary for a short period of time.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Learn more at www.saws.org/smoke. [July 26 via Stone Oak area Nextdoor]

 

“If we find a defect, you’ll see smoke coming out of the ground,” said Jeff Haby, SAWS’ vice president of production and treatment. “It’s critical because we don’t want the sewage coming from that customer’s house potentially leaking into the Edwards Aquifer.”

On Thursday, crews continually lit smoke bombs, each of which burns for three minutes, and dropped them into a wire basket affixed to the fans atop the manholes. As they spotted smoke shooting out of the ground, they marked the spots with small plastic flags.

Those leaks are on private property on sewer lateral lines that are owned by the individual property owners. SAWS owns the main and the portion of the lateral that runs from the main to the property line. From there, it’s the owner’s responsibility.

When smoke billows out of the ground on private property, SAWS officials and their contractors photograph it and notify the property owner.

 
 

It’s an important letter but one you don’t want to receive.

That letter asks the property owner to hire a plumber, who should first investigate the potential leak using closed-circuit television. If there are no “defects,” or leaks found, then the property owner can be reimbursed for the cost, up to $400.

But if the investigation reveals a bona fide leak, then the property owner has to repair it — and submit proof of the fix to SAWS. If it’s a really bad leak, the repairs could cost thousands of dollars, Haby said.

The utility has begun working its way through about 35,000 laterals along 700 miles of pipe over the recharge zone.

SAWS has identified 54 defects in the first 30 miles of testing, he said. The vast majority of those were problems with the caps on the clean-out pipes in front yards. They’re often damaged during landscape work, he said. It’s an easy fix that doesn’t require a plumber. [San Antonio Express-News, August 30, 2019]
