Background and process
Today, our existing water supply fulfills the City’s commitment to provide a safe and reliable supply of water. The updated Master Plan will provide short-term, mid-term and long-term water supply options to ensure we can continue to meet the demands of Guelph’s growing population. When investigating existing and new water supply options – like new groundwater sources in and outside of Guelph and local surface water sources – we’ll consider things like water quality and quantity, climatic conditions, economic factors and any relevant regulations.
Once the Master Plan update is reviewed by the Guelph community and approved by Council – we’ll have identified constraints and opportunities related to our existing water supply system. We’ll also have evaluated and prioritized individual projects to increase the capacity of our existing system.
