***UPDATE: The Smoke Testing has been postponed until further notice. 
Attention: Town of Lamar Residents and Occupants

The Town of Lamar Water and Sewer Department will be conducting smoke testing of its sanitary sewer system.
This smoke testing is set to begin AUGUST 31, 2021 and could last for several days.
An important task of the testing will be to locate breaks and defects in the sewer system, and also to reveal sources of where storm water and other surface water may be entering the sewer system.

A non-toxic smoke will be used in the tests. Please note, some smoke may enter your home or place of business because your plumbing appliances are connected to the sewer system.
Should traces of smoke or odor enter your house or building, please call the Lamar Water and Sewer Department 843-326-5551.

Please click here for the full Public Notice of smoke testing to begin tomorrow, AUGUST 31, 2021.
