The Town of Mount Olive has been conducting smoke test on its sewer collection lines. We have found buildings that do not have a sewer line vent to daylight (sewer vent located on the roof of your house) When smoke testing is done this can cause pressure to buildup in the sewer lines. Water can sometimes back out of the lines into the building. Smoke can also escape from the lines into the building. Please notify the town if you know of any sewer plumbing issues. The Town of Mount Olive will continue some testing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays indefinitely.
Should you have any additional questions please contact Glenn Holland, WWTP ORC at 919-658-6538 or 919-222-2158.
Starting on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 we will begin smoke testing our sewer lines every Tuesday and Wednesday indefinitely. The purpose of this testing is to locate any breaks or holes in the lines that cause inflow and infiltration into our sewer system.
