In 2010, Norfolk County completed a groundwater investigation to evaluate the potential of developing a groundwater source capable of providing the anticipated additional capacity. The main conclusion of the final report was that a groundwater supply could be developed from a location northeast of Simcoe to meet the required additional supply.
