In preparation for the testing, several manholes that have been paved over will have to be exposed. Sewer plant operator James McBride said that the older manholes in the system were forged locally and were not a standard size. When the system was switched from one that handled rain and sewage together to one that separates the two, some of the manholes were grated and the easiest way to seal them was to pave them over.

A firm date was not set for the testing, but it will likely take place over three or four days in August.
