The Town of Gibsonville will be conducting a smoke test of the sewer system starting today, September 15 through September 18. There are areas in Elon that are interconnected with the sewer system of Gibsonville. Those areas include the following streets within the Ashley Woods neighborhood: Westbrook Ave, Brookview Drive, Arbor Drive, Franz Court, Elm Crest Lane, Aspen Avenue, Avenue of Trees, and Ashley Court. While there should be no impact to your homes, in some cases, you may see a small amount of smoke exiting your sewer vent pipes.
The smoke test is used to determine if there are any leaks in the sewer lines in order to plan for repairs. If you have concerns or questions, please contact the Elon Public Works team at 336.584.9600.
