Musician Rosemary Olsen, who lives downtown, told KSLTV that she repeatedly heard a B-flat chord outside her window.

“Just really kind of scary, but it was beautiful,” she said.

After posting the strange noise on social media, she received some funny reactions.

“A lot of people were like, ‘Those are aliens!'” she said.

Another person joked, “Oh, that was my band’s practice, it was supposed to be a minor 7th. I guess we screwed it up.”

Others said they heard the tune coming from their toilet, according to the outlet.

However, it was not aliens, but a sewer rat, according to the Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities.

The music was part of a routine water line assessment using a Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool.

Director Laura Briefer told the outlet: “We use tones on the sewer line to determine if there are any clogs in the system that we can clear.”

A transmitter is placed at a maintenance hole and then removed a few feet, a receiver is placed at another hole.

“One sends out the tone and the receiver listens to the tone,” said Steve Terry, head of wastewater collection.

“If the receiver listens for that tone to come through, then they will give it a score as far as how open and unobstructed the pipe is.”

If the volume changes, this means a blockage – or the channel needs to be cleaned.

“Things like flushable cloths can clog our drains along with things like greases, oils and grease,” Briefer said.

The sewer rat keeps workers out of tight spaces and waste and is environmentally friendly, she said.

“We are significantly reducing the amount of water and energy required for a traditional water line assessment,” Briefer said.

Olsen really liked the notes, saying, “I thought this is a very earthy work and they made something ethereal and beautiful out of it.”

She asked, “Why did they choose an extended chord? Does it have more thrust, does it have more power?” in terms of technology.

Residents can always report the noises they hear to the department, Briefer said.

“A lot of times our work is out of sight and out of mind, and I don’t think people really realize how much is going on behind the scenes and underground,” she said.
