The goal of the Wastewater Treatment and Biosolids Management Master Plan is to ensure the City’s wastewater (everything flushed down your sinks, drains, and toilets) is managed in a way that is sustainable, protects our waterways and the environment. The Master Plan is the City's long-term plan that will look at how the City is currently managing Guelph's wastewater and how we can continue to meet the demands of Guelph's growing population now until 2051.

The master plan will consider:

  • Advances in treatment technologies.
  • Changes in wastewater treatment plant infrastructure needs and legislation.
  • Sustainable and cost efficient wastewater treatment concepts that mitigate climate change and contribute to reaching the City’s goal of using 100 per cent renewable energy sources by 2050.
  • Guelph’s growing population and it’s impact on the wastewater treatment process and Speed River’s capacity.
  • How it will contribute to achieving the strategic priorities set out through the City’s Strategic Plan.

The first virtual open house is available for viewing at virtual open house. We welcome your feedback.
