Our Community Our Water

Blue wave image across top. Below blue wave on left, blue drop of water image above three arrows pointing down. Beside on right, title reads "our community our water quarry site revitalization."

The City of Guelph and the owners of the Dolime Quarry have reached a potential solution to address the City’s concerns about how operations at the quarry could affect Guelph’s drinking water.

The proposed solution is an innovative and unique approach that would address Guelph’s long-term water needs and lead to a more compatible land use in an urban setting. The proposal includes:

  • Closing the Dolime Quarry and bringing the property, currently in Guelph-Eramosa Township, into the City of Guelph's municipal boundary (the quarry owners will still own the property)
  • Giving the City control of the quarry’s water supply and building an on-site water management system
  • Allowing the property owner to create a new mixed-use residential neighbourhood that people can call home

You’ll have in-person and online opportunities to ask questions and share what you think the benefits and challenges of the proposed solution are for our community.
