Six deep wells, scattered across a 350-hectare property in Puslinch Township, near the Starkey Hill Trail, is part of the latest effort by the City of Guelph to increase water flows and meet growing demand for drinking water in this city.
The Arkell Springs project is one of several measures outlined in the 2014 Water Supply Master Plan to meet future demands for a population that’s expected to reach nearly 190,000 by the year 2038.
According to the WSMP, at the rate Guelph is going, demand would exceed current supply by 2023.
