Subject: Norfolk Sanitary Sewer Testing

Dear Norfolk Residents:

Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD), in cooperation with the City of Norfolk, will be conducting inspections and repairs of the public sewer system in the City right-of-way in various neighborhoods from late August through December 2014. Residents will be notified at least five days before testing occurs on their street.

To determine which sewer pipes and manholes are most in need of repair or replacement, firms test and inspect these elements on a regular basis. Testing methods include smoke testing, camera inspections, pipe cleaning and night flow testing. These activities typically will not affect sanitary sewer service.

For more information, please view attached Smoke Testing FAQS.  HRSD has speakers available for civic leagues if residents have specific questions.

Thank you,

Deidre Harmon
