Guelph moves to Level 1 yellow water restrictions
In a news release, the city says the move to Level 2 red is due to an increase in water use, the hot, dry weather and low river levels.
The city says it will continue to monitor the conditions and work with the Grand River Conservation Authority throughout the summer to decide if and when water use levels can or should change.
