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

  • Area: City crews will be working in the Timmins area South of Algonquin Blvd West.

  • Time of Disruption: September 3, 2019 7:30am until September 30, 2019 4:00pm

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, 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.
