Seeing smoke in DeKalb? It could be coming from sewer line leaks

Smoke will begin rising from the ground in parts of DeKalb County as part of a test for sewer line leaks.

The smoke will give county contractors a visual indication of places where rainwater, creek water and other storm water runoff enter the system.

The smoke tests, which will be conducted during the next few months in about one-third of DeKalb, are non-toxic and not harmful to pets, according to the county.
