Only Toilet Paper Should be Flushed Down the Drain

Wastewater Collection Staff cleared a sewer blockage yesterday from a mass of wipes that was around eight to nine metres long. Residents must not flush wipes down the drain even if they are advertised as flushable.

Wipes can block homeowner and municipal sewer pipes causing sewer backups and disruptions to the treatment processes at the Water Pollution Control Plant. Only toilet paper should be flushed down the drain.

Water Fill Stations Still Operating

The City continues to operate and maintain two residential water fill stations/tap houses (Valley Street Water Fill Station and Highway 61 Water Fill Station) to provide rural Thunder Bay residents with potable water. There is also one water fill station for commercial use only (Central Avenue Water Fill Station).

Residents can buy residential fobs at the following locations:

  • Oliver Road Can-op, 1419 Oliver Rd.
  • South Neebing Variety, 2060 Hwy 61 (Hwy 61 at Mountain Rd.)
