In memoriam

UD professors and students remember Alexis DeFrancesco as a diligent student who liked to sit in the front row and as an outgoing and caring friend.

The testing involves blowing a non-toxic smoke into the sewer lines. The smoke will reveal places where storm and other surface waters are entering the sanitary system.

During this testing, gray smoke might exit through vents pipes on roofs of buildings and through sewer breaks.

Those with questions concerning this work should call Jim Morrissey of Savin Engineers at 914-769-3200, ext. 225, or Rob Koechert at 302-266-9600.
