Dennis Novack Tests for Cross-Connections Between Sanitary and Storm Pipes

pwd electronic technician dennnis novack "Q: I got a letter that you're doing these inspections - what's it about? A: This is for cross reference to see if the sani[tary sewer] is going to the sani pipe from your home and the storm is going to the storm pipe. Q. And what does that show over there? A. This the the storm pipe that runs the whole length of the street. it's made out of brick. Its' two feet 0 inches which is 24 inches up and down. And if you look, that's from the house over there, that's the lateral that runs from the house...That other crew will put dye in because you have two inlets on the curb. One goes to sani one goes to storm. You put differnet color dye in and then when they run water they see if the right color dye comes out in the pipe. If it does, everything is fine. Q. Is everything fine so far? A. Well, we haven't started yet."  Dennis Novack, Water Department Electronic Technician. Pwd_electronic_technician_dennnis_n

Denny Novack is my dad. Thank you for doing this interview with him. He has one of those jobs that many people aren't familliar with or even aware of.
Also, I know it makes him feel important; that he's an integral part of the work-force behind the Philadelphia Water Department.
Thanks again!
