Public Notice: Smoke Testing Sanitary Sewer

Field crews from National Water Main Company will be conducting smoke testing of the sanitary sewer system around Conesus Lake, on behalf of the Livingston County Water & Sewer Authority. This work is part of a larger study that is being completed to identify sources of extraneous flow entering the sanitary sewer system.

For more information visit our website: or call 585-346-3523.

What we need from you:

  • Field crews will be wearing high visible safety gear with their logo visible
  • Stay alert and slow down when driving near the work areas.
  • Please review the FAQ’s printed below


Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Is the Smoke Hazardous?
    No, the smoke is non-toxic, non-staining, white in color, and has no odor. It does not create a fire hazard.
  1. What should I do if smoke gets into my home?
    Notify field crews. Open windows and doors to allow ventilation. Smoke inside could indicate faulty plumbing or cracked seals. The smoke detector may sound, but the smoke will clear quickly.
  1. Do I need to be home during the test?
    No, field crews will be taking photos and may walk along the front of your property to determine where the smoke is going but will not enter any homes.
  1. What if I have pets’ home during the test?
    The smoke is not harmful to humans or pets. However, you could leave a window partially opened so that it can escape. If you have proper plumbing connections and all the drain traps have water in them, there should be no smoke entering your home.
  1. How should I prepare for smoke testing?
    Drain traps should be filled with water to prevent sewer gases and smoke from entering your home.
  1. What are the benefits of performing a smoke test?
    Smoke testing is one method of identifying sections of sewer that may have the potential for additional inflow into the sanitary sewer system during rain events.
  1. Will I be notified about sewer leaks at my house?
    LCWSA may be in contact with you later to discuss potential repairs that may be needed.

Solar Eclipses

Let’s Get Prepared!

Two solar eclipses will occur in NYS within a six-month time frame. This rare and exceptional circumstance will make New York, especially the Finger Lakes Region, a magnet for hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the United States.

On Saturday, October 14, 2023, an annular solar eclipse will cross over portions of New York. The sun will appear as a “ring of fire” around the moon. During the annular eclipse, looking directly at the sun without specialized eye protection designed for solar viewing is never safe.

Following the annular eclipse, a total solar eclipse will take place on Monday, April 8, 2024. The moon will pass between the sun and the Earth, causing a complete block of the face of the sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk, and Livingston County will experience a total eclipse for approximately 3 minutes and 33 seconds (the longest totality in Caledonia). Eclipse viewers should never look directly at the sun without appropriate eye protection except during totality. This will be the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States until 2144.

We want you to be prepared! Livingston County Tourism has established a number of resources and funding opportunities to help prepare for the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse that will take place on April 8, 2024. Extensive research has gone into preparing for this event including gathering information from places affected by the 2017 eclipse.

One of the most challenging planning aspects is determining how many people may visit Livingston County for this event. The Finger Lakes Region is considered one of the premier locations to view the eclipse due to our proximity to major cities combined with our already robust tourism industry.

With the potential for a large influx of crowds, we encourage all businesses and organizations to become familiar with the upcoming eclipse dates and begin preparing accordingly. Please review the following to see how your business or organization can prepare for the upcoming eclipses.
