SEWER SMOKE TESTING

The Sewer Authority will be conducting smoke testing of the sewer lines July 19th through July 29th. The smoke is non-toxic and non-corrosive. It is dyed for identification but does not leave an odor or stain.
 
Smoke should not enter your home unless a leak is present. Any smoke entering your home should be reported to workers conducting the test, or by calling 570-396-0275 with your address. Smoke in the home indicates sewer gasses are leaking into your home.
 
All testing will be conducted on public property. However, workers will be required to access private property as some manholes, sewer lines, and laterals are located there. For questions, please call 570-945-7484

Factoryville Christmas Market

Factoryville Borough had a very successful year for the 2021 season of the Christmas Market. There were over 2000 people who attended the event, including the Friday night vendor preview and tree lighting ceremony. Vendors commented that they had record sales, and patrons enjoyed the music, activities, food, and shopping. The dates for the Christmas Market have already been penciled in for December 2-4, 2022. If you would like to help plan and/or volunteer for this upcoming year, please call the Borough Hall or contact Elena O’Connor directly at elenaboconnor@gmail.com
