The City of Timmins Environmental Services Department wishes to advise the public of a Preventative Boil Water Advisory.

  • Area: Pine Ridge Motel & Trailer Court
  •  Date of Advisory: May 09 2023 until further notice.

The City of Timmins is requiring you to take the following steps:

  • Users of the water supply should bring their water to a rolling boil for one minute prior to consumption;
  • Any water used for cooking/food preparation must be boiled then cooled prior to use; and,
  • All water taps must be posted, indicating that the water is not safe to drink.

The Preventative Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the sample results confirm the water is fit for human consumption.

For more information, see the Porcupine Health Unit’s Boil Water Advisory page: https://www.porcupinehu.on.ca/en/your-community/safe-water/boil-water-advisories/

Questions or concerns can also be directed to Service Timmins at 705-264-1331 during business hours. After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this work.

The City of Timmins Environmental Services department wishes to advise the public of hydrant flushing/watermain cleaning activities in the following areas:

  • Areas: Timmins South (on-going), back road into Porcupine, and South Porcupine
  • Time of Disruption: May 10, 2023 beginning at 8:00 a.m. and on going for the month of May

Homeowners and businesses in the affected areas may experience short-term loss in water pressure or experience brown or rust-coloured water following the testing. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discoloured water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to turn off your tap for 10-20 minutes in order to allow the crew to complete the test. Once the test is complete and the work crew has left the area, turn on the COLD water tap closest to the source (usually your laundry tub tap) and let it run for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the water colour has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this necessary process. If there are any questions, concerns or requests for additional information, they may contact the Service Timmins at 705-264-1331. After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.

Note on the Plan:

Sweeping Operations will take several weeks to complete. There is a lot of sand to pick up every year, so we ask residents to remain patient. Weather conditions and mechanical issues play a major role in how quickly Public Works can complete the sweeping operations. Heavy rain and subzero temperatures will halt operations.

Posted No Parking Signs Advising Spring Maintenance:

Public Works would like to remind residents that yellow No Parking Signs will be posted to notify that Spring Maintenance will be taking place for daytime operations. Vehicles not complying with these No Parking signs will be ticketed and towed to allow for Street Sweeping Crew to advance.

Priority Sequence for Street Sweeping Operations:

Day Operation:

Street Sweeping is never done in the area where Sanitation is taken place.

High density residential areas (Older Section of City: one-ways, narrow streets);

Low density residential areas

Night Operation:

Highway sections;

High density commercial sections;

Main Arterial Routes.

Safety:

A reminder to respect safety signage as the safety of workers is very important.  

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
