Please be advised that the Village of Channahon is conducting a program to identify locations where storm water is entering the Village sanitary sewer system. The study, being performed by the engineering firm RJN Group, Inc., includes smoke testing of the sanitary sewers.
Smoke testing is a simple means of locating openings in the sewer system that allow surface rainwater runoff to enter the sanitary sewers. The smoke is non-toxic, low odor, creates no fire hazard, leaves no residue, dissipates quickly and is harmless.
Smoke testing is scheduled for the areas of Hunters Crossing and The Highlands beginning in mid-October through late October, weather permitting (see maps below). Letters were sent to affected residents last week with further information. Additional notification will be provided by door hanger cards prior to the start of smoke testing and signs will be posted when crews are testing in your area.
If you have any questions, please contact Archana Kuchimanchi, RJN Project Manager, at (630) 291-9879 or the Village of Channahon at (815) 467-6644. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
