Simcoe Water Supply Class Environmental Assessment

Background

Groundwater is the sole water supply source for the Community of Simcoe. The water is drawn from nine wells and an infiltration gallery/well system. Maximum daily water supply requirements for the community are expected to increase and additional sources are required to augment these existing sources. 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.
