City contractors are turning water valves off today to isolate watermains along the Connecting Link construction zone that will be replaced. Homeowners and businesses in the area of Algonquin Blvd. between Theriault Blvd. and Rea St. N extending along Rea St. S may experience a loss in water pressure or discoloured water during this process.

Homeowners and businesses along Rea St. N. may also experience a disruption in water service for the day while work is completed.

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, 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. If there are any questions, concerns or requests for additional information, they may contact the Service Timmins at 705-264-1331.

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.
