Bryan's water services crew started smoke testing of the city's sewer lines Thursday morning.
They pumped smoke into the lines in search of breaks and defects.
City officials say smoke exits vent pipes on roofs, out of manholes and from the ground if there are breaks, but that the smoke is non-toxic and doesn't leave a residue.
Citizens do not need to be home during the test.
Intermittent testing could be done into October.
The following are the target areas for the city:
1600 through 2600 Block of North Texas Avenue
