Ministry Grants Completion Date Extension for Whitney-Tisdale Pump Station 
The City of Timmins wishes to advise the public that the completion date for the Whitney-Tisdale Pumping Station No. 4 project has been extended to January 28, 2022, as approved by the Ministry of the Environment.

The project is nearing completion and the City is pleased to report that the micro-piling work undertaken to rectify issues encountered on the site has been completed. The commissioning activities, which are required to be completed before the new pumping station can be put into operation, have led to an extension of the completion date. The extension is necessary due to leaking of the equalization tanks and flooding of the pump equipment, which occurred during mandatory facility testing.

The City is confident that the contractor will complete the construction of a fully operational station before turning the project over to the City by the end of January, including any delays in final commissioning that may occur over the holiday break. The City has taken all commercially reasonable steps to mitigate the impact of any further delays.

The City can further confirm that the extension of the completion date is not expected to give rise to any additional costs above the amended remediation budget for the project.
