About our building
The Township of Springwater was incorporated on January 1, 1994 when the Townships of Flos and Vespra were amalgamated with the Village of Elmvale and the Hillsdale/Orr Lake area from the Township of Medonte. The current municipal office is located on the former site of the Midhurst Forest Station that began operating in 1922. Upon the building’s completion in 2009, it received a LEED Silver Standard recognizing its sustainability and limited impact on the environment.
