BRANSON, Mo – The City of Branson’s Utilities Department personnel will visit each property in the Hiawatha Heights area starting on Monday, April 25, 2022, for routine sewer line dye testing.
Dye testing will start on Stanley Avenue toward the Cliff Drive area. Field crews will be wearing high-visibility vests, City of Branson Utilities shirts and will have photo identification cards. If the property has an outside cleanout, the inspector will not need to enter the residence.
If there is not a visible outside cleanout on the property, inspectors will need access to the interior sewer line for dye placement. City personnel will attempt to contact residents by phone to gain access to interior sewer lines to place the dye. Dye testing involves placing a non-staining water soluble dye in the drain or cleanout of your property and flushing it with water. The sewer infrastructure is then examined for traces of dyed water.
This testing will occur over the next two to three months and will happen Monday through Fridays between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
If you would like additional information or have questions, please contact the Utilities Department at 417-243-2731.
