Guelph, Canada: Rebates for Greywater Reuse and Rainwater HarvestingCircle City Scan Tool Case Study
The Canadian city of Guelph has long been considered a leader in water sustainability and conservation in Canada. With climate change, a constrained supply of groundwater as their primary drinking water source, and increasing provincial population growth, planning for alternative supply sources became necessary. The city responded by introducing rebates for installation of greywater reuse and rainwater harvesting systems, which reduce demand on the water supply by allowing homes and businesses to use water that would otherwise enter sewage or storm water systems.
This case study was developed as part of the Circle City Scan Tool pilot. Learn more about the project.
