Please be advised that water has been restored to most of the Mountjoy area, excluding properties from Emerald to McBride, on the south side only.

Where water has recently been restored, residents may see some discolouration. 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.

Excavation has begun to determine the issue. We can confirm that this is not the water main that was relined last summer.
City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation, and advise that if there are any questions, concerns or requests for additional information, they may contact Service Timmins at 705-264-1331 or email After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.
