Stormwater Management Master Plan

We’re updating the 2012 Stormwater Management Master Plan to ensure stormwater (rain) is properly managed in a way that helps protect Guelph’s water supply and environment in a sustainable way.

The master plan is a long-term plan that looks at how the City is currently managing stormwater and guides how we will continue to do so over the next 25 years. It will take into account government legislation, technological advances and infrastructure needs, and address issues we face today like flood control, maintaining the quality of our local waterways (rivers, lakes and streams) and drinking water supply (groundwater), the overall environment and maintaining local water balance

We want to hear from you

How we manage stormwater affects you. It also affects our drinking water supply and our environment. Your feedback is an important part of updating the master plan. The City will look for your feedback throughout the master plan update, both in-person and online. Opportunities to have your say will be posted here, on, and on our Twitter and Facebook channels.

The process

This study will be carried out according to the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (2011, as amended), which is an approved Class of Environmental Assessment under the Environmental Assessment Act. Results from this study will be documented in an environmental assessment that will be made available for a public review period. At that time, residents, Indigenous communities and other interested persons or groups will be informed of when and where the environmental assessment can be reviewed.
