Mandatory flow testing activities South Porcupine & Porcupine area 

The City of Timmins Environmental Services Department wishes to advise the public of mandatory flow testing activities in the following areas that could affect water quality.

  • Area: South Porcupine and Porcupine. All areas east of Crawford St

  • Time of Disruption: Sept 13 2021 8:30am until Sept 17 2021 4:00pm

Homeowners and businesses may experience loss in water pressure or experience brown or rust-coloured water during 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 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, and advise that 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.
