Sewer Lining and Manhole Rehabilitation Project 

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.
