Water Efficiency Strategy

Guelph is one of Canada’s largest communities to rely on a limited groundwater supply to meet our community’s water needs. Water efficiency and conservation efforts—by residents, businesses and the City— are critical to ensuring our groundwater supply isn’t overused. Mindful efforts and actions to conserve water use protect our environment and benefit our community through cost savings that would otherwise be needed to bring on new water supplies.

The 2016 Water Efficiency Strategy update identifies improvements to current programs and suggests new ones that will help Guelph achieve greater water supply savings. The update looks at possible water savings, program implementation timelines, and the resources needed to support these programs. The Water Efficiency Strategy update is aimed at achieving the water demand reduction goals of the 2014 Water Supply Master Plan Update.
