About the Water Supply Master Plan Update
The City of Guelph is updating its Council-approved Water Supply Master Plan to define how we will continue to access a sustainable supply of water—for residential and industrial use—over the next 25 years.
Reviewing our existing water supply system is an opportunity to discuss with the community how best to manage this vital supply so that we continue to provide the high level of service Guelph residents have come to expect.
Today, our existing water supply fulfills the City’s commitment to provide a safe and reliable supply of water. Our updated Master Plan will provide short-term, mid-term and long-term water supply options to meet Guelph’s predicted demand for water in the future.
Our review will follow the requirements of a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA). When we are finished—after our Water Supply Master Plan Update is reviewed by the Guelph community and approved by Council—we will have identified constraints and opportunities related to our existing water supply system. We’ll also have evaluated and prioritized a number of individual projects to either increase the capacity of our existing system or to reduce our demand for water.
