Water supply master plan

The City is updating its 2014 Water Supply Master Plan (WSMP) to review our drinking water sources and identify priorities for our water supply, including where our drinking water will come from in the future.

The WSMP provides short-, mid- and long-term water supply options to ensure we can continue to meet the demands of Guelph’s growing population. We’ll investigate existing and new water supply options--including new groundwater and surface water sources in and outside of Guelph--and consider things like water quality and quantity, climate conditions and change, economic factors and relevant regulations.

When we’re done, we’ll have identified constraints and opportunities related to our existing drinking water supply. We’ll also have evaluated and prioritized individual projects to increase the capacity of our existing drinking water supply.

Your input is an important part of this process.
