The city of Lansing will tentatively begin cleaning and recording video of sanitary sewer facilities in several neighborhoods on Tues., Oct. 10, 2017.

Contractor Hydro-Klean, Inc. will clean and inspect the City’s affected sewer mains. Bright green door hangers will be placed on front doors before work begins.  Maps on the City’s website, www.lansing.ks.us, will be updated with the approximate dates when work will be occurring in specific neighborhoods. Work will occur Mon. – Fri., 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.  City employees or contractors will not need to enter residences at any time. (Map links: http://www.lansing.ks.us/DocumentCenter/Index/292)

It is important that affected residents prepare plumbing fixtures.  Sometimes hydraulic cleaning equipment will push air up through some plumbing fixtures in your home, and might cause an unexpected discharge of water from private service lines up through drains, toilets, and other plumbing fixtures. 

Prior to the work, residents should:

  • Flush all toilets and lay a towel across the top of the seat;
  • Close the lids on all toilets;
  • Run water in each plumbing fixture for 15 seconds (to ensure water is in your P trap);
  • Cover floor drains with a towel and paint can, or an empty 5 gallon bucket.

Occasionally, after the maintenance has been completed, cleaning the lines will remove all water from the traps and may result in an odor coming from the drains or plumbing fixtures.  To flush the odor away, simply run water in the drain for 15 seconds, or flush the toilet.
