For the week of November 24, 2022
Sanitary Sewer Maintenance
Sanitary sewer maintenance will be completed in northwest Tillsonburg from November 14 until December 16.
The work will be performed on weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Affected neighbourhoods include Glendale, Glendale West, Oak Park, Woodland Estates, Lisgar Heights and Southridge. Get full details at www.tillsonburg.ca/sewer.
Contractors will be working in different areas of the highlighted area. Please note high traffic areas may be flushed after 7:00 p.m. to ensure safety for contractors and residents.
During this work, a bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and/or toilets. If you notice this occurring, close all toilet seats and cover any floor drains during the flushing period. In order to prevent sewer gases from migrating into the home, it is important to refill all plumbing traps by running the water in your sinks and floor drains after the work is complete.
The Town of Tillsonburg is currently hiring for the following positions:
- Human Resources Generalist
- Skate Guard
