The City of Timmins would like to advise the public that our CCTV and Sewer Line Cleaning project will begin Monday, June 05 until August 4, 2023.

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.

The purpose of the project is to inspect our existing water infrastructure to proactively schedule maintenance or plan rehabilitation. There are two steps in the process: the sewers are cleaned by flushing and inspected using a process called closed-circuit television inspection (CCTV). A robotic camera is inserted into the pipe at one end and drives the length of the sewer, recording any connections or defects.

The following areas will be affected:
• North of Timmins
• South of Timmins
• South Porcupine
• Porcupine

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

If you have any questions, Service Timmins is available by phone at 705-264-1331 or in-person during regular business hours at City Hall.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation while we complete this necessary work.

The City’s Sewer Lining and Manhole Rehabilitation project is underway and will be on-going until the end of August 2023.
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.

Sanitary sewer relining is a cost-effective way to extend the life of aging infrastructure, minimize long-term maintenance costs, and avoid costly excavation of roads and property.

During the installation of the new liner, you may notice an odor similar to fiberglass. This odor, if detected, is coming from your service (the 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 to your health.

The following areas will be affected:

  • Balsam St. N and S
  • Elm St.
  • Grant St.
  • Sixth Ave.
  • Fifth Ave.
  • Toke St.
  • Hemlock St.
  • Tamarack St.
  • Cedar St. N
  • Maple St. N
  • Spruce St. N
  • Dome Ave.
  • Dwyer Ave.
  • Vipond Rd.
  • Templeton Ave.
  • Fourth Ave.
  • Les Hall St.
  • Boundary LN.
  • Battachio St.
  • Croatia Ave.

Traffic controls will be in place and drivers are asked to slow down when proceeding through the work zone.
If you have any further questions, Service Timmins is available to help, by phone at 705-264-1331 or in-person during regular business hours at City Hall.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we complete this necessary work.

The City of Timmins is requiring you to take the following steps:

The Preventative Boil Water Advisory will remain in effect until the sample results confirm the water is fit for human consumption.

The City of Timmins Environmental Services department wishes to advise the public of hydrant flushing/watermain cleaning activities in the following areas:

  • Areas: Timmins South (on-going), back road into Porcupine, and South Porcupine
  • Time of Disruption: May 10, 2023 beginning at 8:00 a.m. and on going for the month of May

Homeowners and businesses in the affected areas may experience short-term loss in water pressure or experience brown or rust-coloured water following 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 to turn off your tap for 10-20 minutes in order to allow the crew to complete the test. Once the test is complete and the work crew has left the area, 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. After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.
