Mike Gonzales, of the Louisiana Rural Water Association (LRWA), marks a leak in the city of Leesville's sewer system Monday morning. The city, through the help of the LRWA, started smoke testing its sewer lines this week to better identify leaks in the system. Officials started in the Anderson Drive area and Westwood Drive area and by 11 a.m. Monday, had already identified 25 leaks. The testing is paid for through the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and will continue throughout the next few weeks as officials aim to test all of the city's lines.
