Businesses reminded to flush private water supply 
May 8, 2020 - The City of Timmins would like to remind all business and property owners returning to operations to properly flush their private water supply before reopening in order to avoid any water quality issues.

Based on the Government of Ontario guidelines for businesses, the City is aware that some facilities’ water has been dormant during the COVID-19 pandemic, and are strongly recommending to all those affected to, at minimum, run water through all outlets until the water runs clear.

The City of Timmins provides clean, safe drinking water throughout the distribution system, however, it is the responsibility of the owner to maintain private water services, including flushing the lines to pull fresh water from the distribution system.

For additional information, please refer to the ‘Safely Re-Opening Buildings – Fact Sheet’ available at HERE.
