    TO THE PROPERTY OWNER OR TENANT THIS AREA WILL BE SMOKE TESTED WITHIN THE 24 – 48 HOURS NOTICE STANTEC, A CONSULTANT FOR THE CITY OF TOLEDO, WILL SOON BE SMOKE TESTING THE SANITARY SEWERS IN THIS AREA. SEWERS WILL BE FILLED WITH SMOKE TO DETECT LOCATIONS WHERE THE RAIN WATER IS ENTERING THE SANITARY SEWER SYSTEM. TO PREVENT SMOKE FROM ENTERING YOUR BUILDING THROUGH THE PLUMBING, MAKE SURE THE DRAIN TRAPS ARE FULL OF WATER. TO DO THIS, POUR AT LEAST ONE GALLON OF WATER DOWN FLOOR DRAINS, BASEMENT SINKS AND DRAINS, AND ANY OTHER SELDOM USED DRAIN. IF, DUE TO FREQUENT SEWAGE ODORS, YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR BASEMENT DRAINS MAY NOT BE TRAPPED, PLACE A FOLDED WET TOWEL OVER THE DRAIN. THE SMOKE USED IS WHITE WITH A SLIGHT ODOR AND IS NON-COMBUSTIBLE. IF SMOKE ENTERS YOUR HOUSE, PLEASE OPEN YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS AND CONTACT THE LOCAL STANTEC OFFICES AT (419) 867-6666 , AND A PROJECT REPRESENTATIVE WILL BE DISPATCHED TO INVESTIGATE THE PROBLEM. RESIDENTS WITH RESPIRATORY, PULMONARY, AND LUNGS DISORDERS SHOULD USE CAUTION AND TRY TO AVOID EXCESSIVE CONTACT WITH THE SMOKE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL THE STANTEC OFFICES AT (419) 867-6666 . A MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET (MSDS) IS ON FILE WITH THE FIELD CREWS AND THE CONSULTANT OFFICES FOR ANYONE INTERESTED.
