Exhibition Park neighbourhood infrastructure improvements

Project overview

The City of Guelph is exploring options to address infrastructure upgrades required in the Exhibition Park neighbourhood. This includes upgrades to sanitary sewers, watermains, stormwater sewers, and surface works identified in the Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan, the Stormwater Management Master Plan, and through asset management planning.

The preliminary design will involve collecting field information (i.e. a topographic survey and soil information), evaluating design alternatives, and presenting documentation that can be carried forward in subsequent detailed design and construction projects.

What’s happening this summer?

This summer, the City’s contractors will collect topographic survey, legal survey and underground utility information. You may see people in the neighbourhood wearing high-visibility vests collecting this information. You may receive a notice requesting access to your backyard to collect this information.

Additionally, arborists will be in the project area to tag and map tree locations. You may see a small metal tag left behind on the tree. These tags will not harm the tree and will be removed at the end of the project.

The City will also collect information about the soil underneath the project area. You may see a large construction vehicle parked throughout the project area drilling
boreholes to collect this information.
