Notice of Disruption – Flushing of Watermain – May 14, 2024 

The City of Timmins, Environmental Services Department wishes to advise the Public of hydrant flushing/watermain cleaning activities in the following areas.

• Area:

Flushing fire hydrants in the Lonergan Blvd. area

• Time of Disruption:

May 14, 2024, at 8:00am-8:00pm

Homeowners and businesses 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.
