Dear Citizens:   In order to help 911 responders and the town’s water and sewer department, we would like to take a moment to urge you to provide reflective 911 address signs to be posted on your premises. Having the correct 911 address posted clearly and visibly allows first responders to locate your residence quickly in your time of need. It also ensures that the Town of Garland has the correct 911 address updated in our system. It would be helpful for residents to post reflective address signs in their yard. If you have any questions, please contact Town Hall at 910-529-4141. T:ank you!

Dear Citizens, The Town of Garland is conducting a smoke test of its sanitary sewer system. Work crews will be in your area on Thursday April 17, 2014. A “SMOKE TEST” survey will assist our inspection crews in locating breaks and defects in our sewer system. The smoke you see coming from the vent stacks on houses or holes in the ground is NON-TOXIC, NON-STAINING, HAS NO ODOR, WHITE TO GRAY IN COLOR AND CREATES NO FIRE HAZARD. The smoke should not enter your home unless you have defective plumbing or dried up drain traps. It is advisable for the home owner to pour a gallon of water into each floor drain prior to our testing. If smoke enters your home there is good reason to assume that dangerous sewer gases may also be entering your home or business. You should evacuate immediately and notify our work crews. If you are not home and discover smoke when you return, please call us at 910-529-4141 If there are any individuals in your home or business who have respiratory problems and are immobile, please notify us at 910-529-4141. Thank you
