The Region is completing a study to identify potential upgrades to improve the water supply servicing in Cambridge and North Dumfries. Now is a great opportunity to upgrade the water system to make sure that all parts of the system are working together to meet the current and future needs of the community. At the same time, we are able to upgrade aging infrastructure.

The study will:

  • Address the community’s long-term water supply needs
  • Determine the requirements for a new water tower, including size and location
  • Identify how to decommission the existing Inverness Water Tower, if necessary (located on Dalkeith Drive)
  • Determine the appropriate water supply options at the Blair Road wells
  • Determine if improvements are needed at the St. Andrews pumping station and tank site (located at St. Andrews Drive and Southwood Drive)
  • Identify the need and potential location for new watermain upgrades

    We would like your input on the preliminary recommendations for the water system upgrades in Cambridge and North Dumfries. Over the past two years, we have been planning necessary upgrades to improve the water system and ensure it is optimized to perform well for all of the community's current and future needs. These upgrades include building a new water tower, upgrades at the Blair Road wells, upgrades at the St Andrews Pump Station, and installing new watermains.  Through technical investigations, financial analysis, and gathering your input in-person and online, we are presenting the recommendations and seeking your input again at this stage of the project.

    Responses to the survey will be collected together and reported as a whole, which may include averages, percentages and themes. Your response will remain confidential and any identifying information removed. A small number of staff will have access to the data and the data will be used in a public report. The report may be used on the Region's social media channels, Engage Region of Waterloo and will be reported back to Council. 

    The survey will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes.  The survey will remain open until January 8, 2021.
