Guelph’s water and stormwater rebate programs are suspended in response to COVID-19. You can submit an application, and we will process it when all City programs and services are restored. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
If the City has verified that your home has a lead water services we will replace the pipes that run from the municipal water main to your property line at no cost.
We also encourage homeowners to apply for a grant to help cover the cost of replacing the lead pipes on your property.
If you are unable to replace the pipes this year, you can install a water filtration device and/or replacement filter cartridge(s) approved to the National Sanitation Foundation standard NSF-053 to reduce lead in drinking water.
Water filters are a temporary measure to reduce lead levels in drinking water.
Rebates up to $100 for homeowners and tenants
The City of Guelph will provide each qualified homeowner or tenant with a rebate of up to $100 per calendar year based on the total amount paid.
