The City of Timmins Environmental Services & Public Utilities department wishes to advise the Public of a watermain break affecting water quality for areas of Algonquin between Preston and Waterloo.

  • All homes and businesses in the affected area could see coloured water and lower than normal water pressures.
  • Algonquin will be closed between Preston and Waterloo.
  • We estimate the repairs to be complete by Tuesday March 10, 2020

Homeowners in that area may experience brown or rust-coloured water during the repairs. 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 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 work.
