In an effort to improve sewer service, the Town of Barnstable will be conducting smoke testing in portions of Marstons Mills beginning next week.
The testing will take place within The Villages at 624 Osterville-West Barnstable Road from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 12th.
During the procedure, white smoke will vent from manhole covers located in the street and from plumbing vent pipes on roofs.
There is no alarm should smoke enter the home; it is non-toxic, non-staining, and dissipates quickly through open windows; those who suffer from a respiratory condition should avoid the smoke if possible.
The town will also conduct voluntary, door to door building inspections during the same timeframe.
For questions about next week’s testing, contact Weston and Sampson at 774-251-3150.
