Notice to All Residents of Lake Cornelia:
The smoke tests scheduled in August were canceled and now have been rescheduled. The cancelation was due to insurance reasons.
Please be advised that MER Engineering will be testing sanitary sewer lines throughout Lake Cornelia from September 10 to 13, 2013. The testing will include smoke generating equipment that forces smoke into the sewers. Smoke should not enter your premises unless a leak is present. To minimize the chances of smoke entering your house, please pour water into all drains including floor drains prior to the testing.
If any smoke does get in your house it should be reported immediately to the personnel conducting the tests, or by calling Jim Ridenour at 515-571-5151.
The smoke is relatively harmless but unnecessary exposure should be avoided as it may irritate nasal passages. If smoke irritation does occur the effects will be temporary and disappear quickly after exposure has ended. Persons with heart and/or respiratory ailments are encouraged to leave the house during the test. Pets that are exposed will generally react in a manner similar to humans and leave the smoky area. If an exit is not available please be sure your pets are provided with proper ventilation.
We appreciate your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.
