New Video Series Follows our Drinking Water Source to Tap 
The latest video series produced by the City of Timmins aims to educate residents on our drinking water, source to tap. The three-part series was produced by Near North Video Production and provides details on source water protection, water treatment, and distribution.

Timmins drinking water source, the Mattagami River, is protected through legislation introduced in 2006 by the Clean Water Act. The City follows a detailed source protection plan that outlines actions carried out to protect our drinking water from contamination and threat. In collaboration with the Mattagami Region Source Protection Authority, the City of Timmins co-ordinates implementation of the source protection plan, including public education and assessment.

“The purpose of the video series is to emphasize the importance of protecting our drinking water source and to explain how water treatment and distribution work within the city.” says Scott Tam, Manager of Environmental Services & Public Utilities. “The City has systems in place that safeguard clean and safe drinking water for our residents, but public education is the key. There are simple steps everyone can take to help protect our drinking water and it starts at home.”

The first video, Source Water Protection, is available now on or on the City’s Youtube and Facebook channels. Parts two and three will be launched on November 29 and December 6 respectively and will describe in detail how water treatment and distribution occur.
