Town Creek is a monitored flood control work through the City of Timmins. It is maintained by the MRCA to assist with drainage issues, especially in the springtime where high waters are a concern.

Residents, including any snow removal contractors, are not permitted to blow or plow or otherwise place any snow into or next to the Town Creek channel. Snow and ice from roadways and driveways placed into and next to the creek has a major effect on our ability to keep the channel open for the spring melt and can have a negative environmental impact.
