Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan

We’re updating the 2008 Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan (WWSMP) to ensure the City’s water distribution and wastewater collection infrastructure (pipes) continues to support the growing Guelph community now and into the future.

The WWSMP is Guelph’s plan to ensure the City continues to meet the needs of our growing community. The update will look at the City’s current water and wastewater infrastructure and, taking Guelph’s projected population growth into account, define needed increases to the system’s capacity, identify technological advances and opportunities for improving efficiency, and address changes in government legislation.

We want to hear from you

Your feedback is an important part of the WWSMP update process.

The City will look to you for your feedback throughout the WWSMP update both in-person and online. Opportunities for having your say will be posted here, on haveyoursay.guelph.ca and on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

The process

Our Water Supply Master Plan update will follow the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) in accordance with Approach #1 of the Master Plan Process described in the MCEA Manual (amended in 2015) by the Municipal Engineers Association. The WSMP update will be readily updated at approximately five-year intervals. This 2019 update will be coordinated with the Official Plan, and will contain plans for execution of individual projects consisting of Class Environmental Assessment Schedule A, A+, B and C activities.
