Hydrant Flushing and Watermain Cleaning Activities - July 26, 2023 

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

  • City crews will be flushing hydrants on Polaris Rd., O’Neil Ave., and Carlin Ave.
  • Time of Disruption: July 26, 2023 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Homeowners and businesses in the area 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 hydrant flushing. Once flushing 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.

The City would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this necessary process, and advise that 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.
