TUPPER LAKE - The fan was switched on and smoke blown through a manhole on state Route 3 started shooting from roof vents on nearby houses, leaking from manhole covers down the street and rising from the ground in a front yard.

The village water department spent the past two days smoking out leaks, illegal connections and other sources of water inflow in its sewer lines by filling the system with a non-toxic, odorless “liquid smoke” and identifying areas where rainwater and groundwater fill the system.
