Emergency Water Infrastructure Repair affecting the Hemlock area 

The City of Timmins Environmental Services & Public Utilities department wishes to advise the Public of a emergency water infrastructure repair affecting water quality for Hemlock St between Murdock Ave and Eighth Ave.  This is schedule to start Wednesday, March 8, 2023 at 8:30am to approximately 9pm.

  • All homes and businesses in the affected area could be without water for a few hours as well colored water and lower than normal water pressures

Homeowners in that area may experience brown or rust-colored water during the schedule water maintenance. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discolored water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to 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 color has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this work.
