July 25, 2016 "Smoke Testing" for the Sanitary Sewer System
Dear Residents and Property Owners: The Village of Honeoye Falls Department of Public Works along with our engineering consultant, Chatfield Engineers, will be conducting "Smoke Testing" in the sanitary sewer system beginning Monday August 8, 2016 and concluding on Friday August 12, 2016. A non-toxic smoke will be blown into the sewer system to reveal leaks that allow storm water and other surface waters to enter. Locating and correcting these leaks will conserve capacity in the sanitary sewer system.
The smoke is manufactured specifically for this purpose, leaves no residuals or stains, and has no effects on people, plants or animals.It has a distinctive, but not unpleasant, odor. The visible smoke and odor last only a few minutes, where there is adequate ventilation. The smoke should not enter your home. However, if smoke does enter your home, any of the following items are the probable cause.
- The vents connected to your building's sewer lateral are inadequate, defective, or improperly installed.
- The traps under sinks, tubs, basins, showers, floor drains, etc. are dry, defective, improperly installed, or missing.
- The pipes, connections, and seals of the building's sewer system are damaged, defective, have plugs missing, or are improperly installed.
During the days prior to Monday August 8, 2016, pour about 1gallon of water down ALL drains in your home or building to ensure that traps are full. If traces of the smoke or its odor enter your house or building, it is an indication that odor from the sewer system may also be entering. This can be unpleasant, dangerous, and a potential health hazard. The location, identification, and correction of the source of any smoke entering your house is urgently advised. We can provide assistance in locating the source of smoke entering your house. However, correction of any defects in the pipes and sewer on private property is the responsibility of the owner. If smoke is observed in your home and the source is not readily identified or you have any questions, please call David Ford, Village of Honeoye Falls at (585) 624-3620, or Paul Chatfield, Chatfield Engineers, P.C. at (585) 227-6040.
MONROE STREET GAS LINE WORK UPDATE
Monroe Street Residents: The Village has received a few phone calls regarding the National Fuel/Deery Construction project where new fuel lines were installed on Monroe Street.
I have been told by National Fuel that all comments or concerns should be directed to Mr. Brian Deery at (585-314-4576).
I am also sending another letter to both National Fuel and Deery Construction stating the need for better response to calls and inquiries.
Rick Milne, Mayor Honeoye Falls
May 18, 2016
Monroe Street Residents: I have been in continual contact with National Fuel and we are told that the construction company will be back on site to begin the finishing process on the gas line project this coming Monday (5-23-16). We will continue to monitor this project as we all want to see it completed and our sidewalks and yards repaired. (Rick Milne, Mayor-Honeoye Falls)
We spoke with the contractor that is installing the new gas line on Monroe Street about their work schedule, completion date, and restoration of all.
The installation and new services should be complete at the end of this week. They intend to have all the rocks removed and all trenches leveled out by the end of next week.
As for landscaping, sidewalk replacement, and pavement repairs – That will be the end of April. I understand this due to the weather at this time of year. All the sidewalks that have been removed will have temporary asphalt in place until they are ready to concrete.
If anyone has any concerns you can contact Donna at Deery Construction – Her number is 607-522-3861
The Village has been working hard to improve the management of the Village's urban forest. Last year, the Village received a grant to fund the completion of the inventory through NYS's Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program. The inventory will provide management information such as the number of Village trees, health and species of the trees, work needs and sites to plant street trees located on the Village street right-of-way and Village properties. This information will be used develop work plans and budgets.
The Village solicited proposals from urban forestry consulting firms to complete the inventory and a contract was awarded to Urban Forestry LLC of Palmyra New York (www.urbanforestryllc.com). The inventory work is expected to begin this week and must be completed by the end of June this year. You may see the urban foresters Andrew Pleninger and Chris Luley walking the streets and parks completing the work in the coming weeks. They will be wearing yellow safety vests, carrying handheld computers to collect the inventory data and tools of the trade. Please be aware they will not be able to answer questions of work scheduling, Village policy or evaluate trees on private property.
For more information or questions please contact; Village Administrator Greg Emerson at 624-3620
