The construction route passes through an historical industrial and residential landfill.

About the project

The York trunk sewer Paisley-Clythe feeder main is a $30 million, multi-year infrastructure project. It is the City’s largest water main and wastewater (sanitary) sewer project. It includes the installation of 6.2 kilometres of water pipes and 3.8 kilometres of sewer pipes. The City’s 2009 Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan identified the projects as priorities in order to meet our community’s existing and future water and wastewater servicing needs.

The City of Guelph appreciates your patience and understanding as we complete this important infrastructure project. For more information about this project, including updates, please visit
