SANITARY SEWER LEAK DETECTION TESTING NOTIFICATION starting 10/16
Beginning on 10/16/2023, the Village of Bloomfield will be conducting leakage testing on the sanitary sewer system located within the Village. This test is being conducted as part of a study to locate and identify areas of ground and surface water entering the Sanitary Sewer System. This effort will help to reduce sanitary sewer flow volumes and operating costs at the Waste Water Treatment Facility. It is anticipated that this testing will take 5 days, and end on 10/25/2023.
During the test, a non-toxic smoke will be blown into the sanitary sewer system to reveal leaks where storm water and surface waters may be entering the sewer. The smoke that is utilized for this testing is manufactured specifically for this purpose, and it leaves no residual odor or stains, and has no adverse affect on plants or animals. It does have a distinctive, but not unpleasant, temporary odor. The visible smoke and odor only lasts a few minutes, where ventilation is adequate.
To conduct the test, smoke will be introduced at specific sanitary sewer manholes located on the streets. During the test, personnel will conduct a visual observation along streets and around individual homes, for smoke exiting storm sewers, roof gutters, and other areas which may be connected to the sanitary sewer system.
Smoke should not enter your home unless the plumbing is defective or if your home contains drains which are infrequently used. Several days prior to 10/16/2023, please pour or run water down all drains in your home or building to assure that drain traps are filled and in working order
Please feel free to contact the Village of Bloomfield DPW at 585-657-7319 if you have any questions regarding this notification
On June 20, 2023, the Village of Bloomfield Waste Water Treatment Plant exceeded it’s permit limit for ammonia, as NH3, due to an effluent pump fault and low flow. The permit limit is 0.97mg/l, and the sample as tested was 1.0mg/l. The fault in the effluent pump was immediately reset and recirculation of flow increased until the condition was returned to normal later in the same day.
