Chemical root control work March 13 – 25

As part of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government’s infrastructure program, chemical foam is being injected into the sanitary sewer system to control and inhibit root growth within the system. Although the chemical is safe, you may experience the smell of rotten eggs or sewer fumes if there is no water in your drain traps. Please run water in any drain that may not have been used lately. If you experience these smells, ventilate the area and the smell should go away.
