Water Supply Master Plan update

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

The updated WSMP will provide short-term, mid-term 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 – like new groundwater and surface water sources in and outside of Guelph – and consider things like water quality and quantity, climatic conditions, economic factors and any relevant regulations.

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

Your input is an important part of this process.
