W. Ashley residents may see smoke due to testing at Carolina Bay

WEST ASHLEY SC (WCSC) - Charleston Water Systems say residents in West Ashley may see smoke in the area as crews perform smoke testing in Carolina Bay.

Officials say the testing is done by crews who inspect pipes with robotic cameras and use smoke testing to locate cracks in pipes.

"Smoke testing involves using a device to inject a harmless smoke into sewer manholes, then watching to see where the smoke escapes," CWS officials say.
