The City of Timmins’ sewer lining and rehabilitation project starts Tuesday, May 10 until September 30, 2022. Crews will be out working on various sewer main systems around the city with camera trucks and vacuum trucks onsite.

Sewer lining is a trenchless process of inserting new pipe tubing inside the existing sewer lines and curing it in place. The new seal lining can extend the life of sewer lines for decades and is a cost-effective way to preserve our infrastructure. The work required to complete the project requires less digging, yard excavation, or sidewalk replacement.

You may hear gurgling sounds coming from your toilet or sinks and may notice an unfamiliar odor, similar to fiberglass, coming from the service connection that runs between your house and sewer main. In most cases this comes from a dried out drain trap and can be avoided by pouring water into the basement floor drains or any other location (laundry or tub) that may not be in regular use. Please note that the odor is not harmful and will dissipate quickly once work is complete.

The following areas will be affected:
• South Porcupine (William Ave., Cecil Ave., Powell Ave., Broadway Ave., Front St., Shamrock Easement, Warner St., Evans St., Allan St., Tisdale St., Dunn Ave., Smith Ave.)
• Timmins South (Elm St. S, Maple St. S, Birch St. S, Balsam St. S, Pine St. S, Spruce St. S, Kirby Ave., Dale Ave., Ogden Ave.)
• Timmins North (Balsam St. N)

Traffic controls will be in place and drivers are asked to slow down when proceeding through the work zone. If you have any questions, reach out to Service Timmins at 705-264-1331 or online at service.timmins.ca.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.

The City of Timmins acknowledges May 5 as the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S) in Canada. May 5 is also known as Red Dress Day, which began as “an aesthetic response” by artist Jamie Black to call attention to the staggering rates of violence against Indigenous women.

On this day, we are encouraged to honour the memories of those lost and raise awareness of on-going harm and gender-based violence by:
• Wearing red or hanging a red dress in our windows
• Hanging a red dress or tying red ribbon or cloth to a tree in our yards
• Creating Red Dress artwork
• Participating in community Red Dress events and ceremonies

“The City of Timmins is committed to supporting initiatives that foster a deeper understanding of the critical issues faced by our Indigenous peers,” says Mayor George Pirie. “Our response is unequivocal: we will stand united in ending violence against Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people living in and visiting the City of Timmins.”

Red Dress Day can be triggering for those affected by loss related to missing and murdered women, girls and two-spirited people. Emotional support and assistance are available by calling 1-844-413-6649. Health Support Services including cultural support and mental health counselling is also available in Ontario by calling 1-888-301-6426.

The City of Timmins will host approximately 200 evacuees from Kashechewan First Nation, following evacuation of the First Nations community due to flooding on the Albany River. Flights began arriving Sunday, May 1 and will continue through Monday.

The City of Timmins has declared a State of Emergency as a preventive measure to allow for the quick mobilization of municipal support and personnel if required. Upon arrival, all evacuees will be processed and situated by the Red Cross before being transported to the Ramada Inn for temporary lodging.

The City of Timmins is working with the Provincial Emergency Response Organization (PEOC) and Indigenous Service Canada (ISC), along with community partners and service agencies, to ensure residents of Kashechewan have the support and resources they need while in Timmins. We ask that motorists traveling along Riverside Drive in the vicinity of Ramada Inn watch for increased pedestrian traffic.

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 crews 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.
