      If you are adventursome I will tell you about a spring that nobody would know about and has got to be the best around. I know of this spring because it is on the old Kettle Valley rail line and the only way to get to it is hike up from Penticton or down from Chute lake along the old rail line.  When I worked on the CPR as a sectionman in the mid 70s we used to stop here on the speeder and fill a big CPR water bucket from this spring. That was our water for the day. We drank communaly if you can believe it! Cold clear excellent tasting. Big pipe coming out of the side of a rocky cut. Right smack in the middle of nowhere. I am going by memory now but it is about half way down the hill from Chute lake to the Adra tunnel maybe 2-4 miles. I know you can bike that part of the route, not sure if you can take a car down there. Hmmm got me thinking maybe I will go to chute lake and check it out!

    Unable to locate this spring. Is there some sort of landmark nearby? Thanks!

    Found the spring. However, there’s a boil water advisory posted due to the presence of e-coli.

    I live in Naramata, and would be super interested in finding the spring Tom talks about. It was years ago that he posted. any new info on springs in this area? I have been going to the water dept for our water, so it would be little effort to upgrade to a spring!!

    We went and got water today 10 jugs that are all 18liter in size. We have been getting our water from Summerland but thought we would try this spring. We were surprised when we found a pipe that someone put on the spring.

    Hello fellow clean water people!! Well I have gotten water here and its amazing. We got water from summerland and it had a funny taste to it. We went to this spring and it has no after taste, we filled up 10 18Litre jugs and use this water for our everyday drinking. I feel amazing. It was an added bonus that someone added a black plumbing pipe for easy fill. This spring is on the side of the road so all you do is pull in a fill up it could not get any better than this spring!!!
