Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing

August 2020 – September 2020

The City of Cheboygan is conducting a manhole inspection program on the City’s sanitary sewer system. This is required in order to determine if the City is contributing excess flows to the sanitary sewers. These excess flows could be storm (rain) water entering the sanitary sewers through cracks in sanitary pipes, manholes or through sanitary/storm sewer cross connections. This excess flow is then unnecessarily sent through the sanitary sewers to the Cheboygan wastewater treatment plant where it is treated as if it were sanitary flow.
