The City of Timmins Environmental Services & Public Utilities department wishes to advise the Public of scheduled water infrastructure maintenance activities affecting water quality for several areas in South Porcupine and Porcupine.  This is schedule to start immediately Wednesday October 28, 2020.

·         Coloured water and fluctuating pressures for South Porcupine and Porcupine.

·         All homes and businesses in the affected area could see coloured water and lower than normal water pressures

Homeowners in that area may experience brown or rust-coloured water during the schedule water maintenance. 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 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 work.

The City of Timmins Engineering Department would like to advise the Public that a Sewer Lining and Manhole Rehabilitation project will be commencing from Tuesday September 08, 2020 until Friday October 30, 2020.

The Engineering Department is advising the residents that we will have crews investigating various sewer main systems within the City of Timmins. Camera trucks and vacuum trucks will be onsite. Residents should be aware they may hear gurgling sounds coming from their toilet or sinks.

During the installation of the new liner, you may notice an odor similar to fiberglass. This odor if detected is coming from your service (connection that runs between your house and sewer main) through in most cases, a dried out drain trap. It is a common occurrence 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. Pouring water or placing a wet cloth into these locations will prevent the odor from accumulating in your home. Please note that the odor is not harmful. 

The following areas will be affected:

  • South Porcupine (Legion, Shamrock, Bloor, Moore, Golden, Quebec, Main, Laffin and Evans)
  • Porcupine (Lamarche Easement)
  • Timmins South (Downtown Timmins laneways, Preston)
  • Timmins North (Seventh Easement )

Traffic controls will be in place and drivers are asked to slow down when proceeding through the work zone.

To minimize face to face contact between residents and on-site staff due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that residents with inquires direct them through Service Timmins at 705-264-1331.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
